Trustus is our favorite theater! We just saw "Marcus or The Secret of Sweet" there. It was an excellent play. We really enjoy the comfy chairs, the free popcorn and being able to purchase beer and wine! Can't wait to go back!

This theatre boasts everything from drag shows to musicals. Small house makes it possible to have a great view of the stage, no matter where you sit. Their version of "A Christmas Carol" is a MUST!
