We loved the production of Young Frankenstein. The actors, set and sound/effects were all fantastic! We loved the show and the staff members at the theater were very nice and helpful. The only thing not up to par is the seats on the balcony, they are very uncomfortable and do not have a lot of leg room. But we will... More

I recently saw Mulan Jr. at this theatre. The Cast is phenomenal! The staging, the lighting, and the talent is incredible! The Directors are obviously highly skilled. I wish there were more youth shows throughout the year. This is not your "school" play, this is professional by all means (Broadway material). I could see this same show many times, and... More

On Dec. 12, we attended the Bear City Opry Christmas Show. The good thing about this show was that it was cheap. The bad thing was that if it had been free, it would still not have been worth your time. There were three problems: (1) the audio/sound balance was so bad that for most of the songs, all you...

The Theater put on the last show of "Evita" for this season and the house was packed, sold out. The performance was wonderful in this old piece of historical land mark. Seating was very good as was the sound. The performers were wonderful.

My wife and I went here for Valentine's Day to see the play "Simply Simone". It is about the life of singer, Nina Simone. This play was outstanding and the cast did a very good job. I teared-up several times during the play..one was when MLK was assassinated and she sang the "King of Love is Dead". The other was... More

This is an old movie theater that now has plays that are fantastic. They have awesome actors to choose from some really good plays and not very much to go.

We are first time season ticketholders to NBCT and have thoroughly enjoyed the performances. The casts for the 2013-2014 season have been exceptional. Since it's a small theater there are really no "bad seats"...and we've tried them all this season. The actors, producers, directors, musicians, staff and volunteers are to be commended for their professionalism. Currently the theater board has... More

The fast moving, humorous play was a total delight. The cast put on a very professional performance for all to enjoy. Laughter was heard throughout the play. And the duet was superb. Lend Me a Tenor brought the audience to its feet. The small theater offers good seating and a great show.

Lend Me a Tenor is playing now and hysterical. You'll love it almost as much as you'll love the new theater seats. Still the same warm small-theater atmosphere.
