Very quaint/historic theater. Comfortable seating. Seems like a good view of stage, no matter where you were seated. Restrooms could use updating. Pay, "39 steps" was very well presented, actors did an outstanding job. Gail H

We see the Pioneer Valley Ballet's Nutcracker here every year, as well as a spring ballet and at least a few other community shows. Since it was renovated a few years back, it is just that much more special. The theater is a walk back...More
