This is a old theatre nicely restored with great seating and a fine sound system. I have seen many shows here. The theatre has an intimate feel, holds only probably 600 people, and every seat is a good one.

Singing in this theater was a great experience. It is beautiful and staffed with wonderful and helpful people. It is both a sophisticated performance space as well as a comfortable one - you feel right at home!
