Great venue to see live plays. Never been disappointed and budget friendly. Small theatre so every seat is good. Go early and enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

We thoroughly enjoyed the opening night of "Comedy of Errors". The performance was excellent, most entertaining, very funny, in an intimate setting. The old theater is a real treasure along the St. Lawrence.
