Not a bad little theatre. My only complaint was that the wine we had during the intermission was served in plastic cups. There is simply no reason for this wasteful practice. As a side note, many other theatres, such as the Neptune in Halifax, server...More

Great evening with first class talent. This venue provides a wide variety for all tastes of entertainment. This was a treat for my children who had heard a sampling of his music but got to see a broader repertoire. Well worth the money, great venue.
