While staying in Chester for several days in Oct 2019, my daughter and I were fortunate to take in a performance at the Chester Playhouse. We saw Makayla Lynn and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. She has quite a stage presence ... interspersing her singing with stories. Although I'm not a "country music" fan, I did find her music pleasant. Makayla seems to be an up and coming star ... kudos to her!! My daughter bought her CD, which we listened to on our trip back home.

It's a lovely venue. The building is very beautiful, on the outside, and just as beautiful inside. It's a cozy theatre, but has enough leg-room to be comfortable.

Charming little theatre! We saw 39 Steps which we had seen in London. To be honest, I expected it to be middling but was amazed at the quality! Tremendous acting cast and excellent set design. If you are in the area, go and support this great theatre!

We've been to this play house a few times and each time I say I won't be back. I get conned into going by friends that tell me there is a good play on but I've yet to see what I'd call a good play. The actors are amature, the sets are amature and the playhouse is dated. Intermission is a joke where the tiny lobby fills with a group of snooty locals acting as though they're somebody special and important.

This is a great local venue where plays, music, comedians and other entertainment happens. This event was a local band doing a tribute of John Denver music. It was. Great evening. There is coffee and sweets for sale at intermission.
Best to get tickets ahead of time, like on line, by phone etc because events usually sell out.

We had rented a vacation home close to Chester for a 4 day stay. On the first night the playhouse had a spectacular concert tribute to John Denver. Fabulous sounds and the familiar voice of the Country Boy of the 80's. From Rocky Mountain High to Country Roads, the audience sang and clapped to the rhythm of the band.

We enjoyed the night out at the Chester Playhouse. The players did a nice job with the musical production. The setting is intimate. It was classic summer theatre.

We took most of the family to see Ruthless. Kids were 4, 8 &12. My wife and I had a few good laughs ,the kids did too. We called to book in advance. There was an option to book online and even see what seats were available. It's a great time. Be careful and ask about adult content if bringing children. Well spent couple of hours.
