Well performed, intimate theatre space, fun evening. The show was an excellent choice for this stage and all actors were extremely good. There are also several excellent restaurants in the area and made for an entire evening of delightful activity. Highly recommend it.

It's a small theatre, no parking, have to use township parking. It would have been better if it had been built at Park Place, off of Molsons and Highway 400. More parking , restaurants, easier to get to.
