Great play with good acting and singing. The costumes, scenery, and special effects were amazing. Intimate venue with comfortable seating and good legroom. This is going to be a new tradition for us!

We went and saw Dracula and it was amazing. For the space they had, they really conveyed the story well. The first part was a little dull, but after they really got it going. They do have some snacks for sale and have a bar.
