Old fashioned, live theater with audience interaction! Everyone loves to boo the villain and ahhh the beautiful damsel! Young and old, everyone I have taken would give this theater the highest rating for a fun escape from high tech life!

We experienced the "it's a Wonderful Christmas Carol" last night with friends and had a great time. Great humor and the actors were excellent.
