So many great shows every year are put on at this amazing theatre, sitting just across the green from the Palladium. There really isn't a bad seat in the house, and the staff and volunteers are all wonderful. Be aware that while the vaccine and mask mandates are gone for now, some artists may still require those precautions for their shows. In those cases, please don't complain and understand that wearing a mask and getting the vaccine is almost certainly the least you can do to help protect others in our beautiful Carmel community.
Have seen 2 shows here and both times was not only pleasantly entertained but rather impressed by the talent. Highly recommended for any theater lovers. It is an intimate 500 seat venue with plenty of parking and dining options within walking distance.
