Excellent talent brought in every summer for their plays. Good selection for all ages. Love how they intern local students from high schools around our town.

We always go to a couple of shows each year. The list for summer 2016 looks fun. Cannot wait to see a musical.

There is not a bad seat in the house. Very quaint and comfortable setting for excellent viewing of first class plays and musicals. "Cats" was absolutely outstanding. It was almost as if we were onstage with the performers,and their rendition was remarkable.

Saw 'Wonderful Town,' and it was a great show. Surprisingly good leads, well choreographed. Obviously, it isn't Broadway, but it's well worth the money. A fun show on an old river showboat!

A cute old showboat with decent entertainment. It would be better if there was good available. The price is a little high.
