I try to get to the MacHaydn Theatre a few times every summer. The productions are not Broadway, but singing and dancing are always wonderful and it's so much fun to see the shows in such a small intimate setting.

We saw Saturday Night Fever, and LOVED it! Great acting, singing, dancing--first rate summer theater experience. It's a small venue, in the round, and you can't get a bad seat. Awesome.

Every summer the kids and I look forward to seeing a children's play on Friday morning. Mac-Hayden Theatre never disappoints. The plays are always fun and entertaining. There isn't a bad seat in the house and the tickets are reasonably priced.
