  • Highly recommended! The playhouse is in an excellent location. The actors and actresses always do an exceptional job. I have now been to three separate plays, all on different years. I have never been disappointed. Worth every penny!
  • A local playhouse with a talented staff. Offer a great variety of shows throughout the summer season. If you are traveling through the area, this is a must for evening entertainment. Support local arts and enjoy a scenic location. This is an old CCC camp and is a beautiful area to visit.
