Since this is a dinner theatre I feel that the food has to be an important part of the review. I saw the S.S. Ethie tonight. The story was OK but the actors were great. Many of them sing and they all have beautiful voices....More

Solid performances, and shows that are really rooted in the community. Lots of emphasis on music and storytelling. We saw Newfoundland Vinyl and were thoroughly entertained. A small but comfortable space, with no bad seats.

Fantastic was to spend the evening after your dinner. Great local performers and a great live play using only three actors. They move all the props and scenery themselves to change for each act. Close intimate performance including music.
