Have seen many shows at the Bradley Playhouse. The most recent show, The Pirates of Penzance, showcased the special talents of the local artists. Coming up will find us at The Buddy Holly Story. It is just amazing that so much talent is here in our northeast corner of Connecticut.

All the shows there are great, you can see from any seat. The venue is very small so be aware of that.

Recently went to see A Christmas Carol. Its a small place, so every seat in the house has a good view. We sat a few rows from the stage at the highest ticket price of $19. The seats are small and pretty jammed together, so a little discomfort there with refreshments and winter coats to deal with. Offered beer ($6)... More

The entertainment is first rate. The musicals and non-musicals are professionally done and always a pleasure. The one complaint I have heard from people pertains to non-musicals and the difficulty hearing some of the actors. Why not have the actors use personal mics? This would solve the problem of people not being able to hear all the actors. Some voices... More

This is a real gem in the quiet corner. It a great place to bring family, friends and kids when you're trying to figure something to do. The musicals are filled with some of the most amazing voices this side of the Mississippi.
