Overview
More
An intimate, 64 seat theatre and cocktail lounge in the trendy Bay View area. Productions are mostly locally written and produced and range from simple, fun, family-friendly shows to dark, scary and sometimes sexy shows with professional actors, custom 12.1 surround-sound and powerful special effects packed onto a stage smaller than most people's living rooms. Dedicated to proving a lot of "WOW" at some of the lowest ticket prices you'll find anywhere!

Not fancy but great acting in each comedy we have attended. The drink prices were reasonable. Highly recommend the experience.

The Alchemist Theater offers original productions at a low price. Their productions, while very low budget, are always well done, entertaining, and presented with enthusiasm from the cast and crew. The owners cleverly use their adjacent cocktail lounge to complement whatever show is playing, i.e.,...More

Discovered this three years ago and both the atmosphere, decor and shows get better and better. Miss the old cushier seats, but they definitely needed to go a little smaller to fit more in to this tiny place. Always comfortable and entertaining. Always get what...More
