Just saw Anne with our grandchildren. Fantastic performance in a spacious theater. No bad seats, lots of parking surrounded by green space and ponds. Highly recommend catching this performance while available or any of the upcoming performances

Husband and I went to see 'Annie" over the weekend. The cast was good, sound a little shrill but it was a fun and entertaining show. The stage props were excellent and the orchestra did a superb job

5 of my good friends and I went to see The Miracle Worker and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The actors were brilliant along with great period costumes. And of course the story of Helen Keller is just beyond amazing. We all enjoyed it.

I can't imagine this city without Shakespeare. It's lovely and professional and we're so fortunate to have it here. I've lived in much larger cities that didn't have a place this wonderful or people willing to support it. Well done.

I wore casual clothes. Not blue jeans but nice pants and blouse. The men didn't wear coat and tie. Some people were dressed up and some were not. I did not feel out of place not being dressed up. Hope this helps!
