How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It is an older theater building however it is very clean and the seating is comfortable. They have a small gift shop where the proceeds go toward the theater company and have a concession stand for intermission refreshments. The show was very creative and changes slightly each year. This year a local dance company participated with ballet, modern and tap and they threw "snowballs" into the audience (if you caught one, you received a special gift! I didn't catch one so I don't know what it was). They had to use a screen with a few prerecorded dialogues so two of the actors could make a quick costume change because they were playing multiple roles. I was impressed with the costume changes and the screen was creative but slightly took away from the flow of the scene. I wouldn't fault that artistic creativity though, just be open minded about it. The sound in the theater needs a little upgrading and there isn't a parking lot so finding parking is very difficult. I am glad I found discounted tickets because I think the regular pricing is slightly higher than I would spend on this semi professional performance. The acting however was great! Overall very good time and recommend to all ages. My husband and I really enjoyed it.

Help others enjoy a great night out
