I went to StJacobs Country Playhouse to see Sweet Delilah. It was wonderfully funny and poignant and was thrilled with the play. Our seats were fabulous. I will definitely
Go again!

It is a very funny show, anchored by five very funny women. Glad you enjoyed it!

Outstanding experience! Acoustics and view are great from every seat in this intimate theatre! We enjoyed The Sweet Delilah* performace with limited seating and felt very comfortable with the distance between audience groupings. Meet our out-of-town friends at the restaurant next door beforehand and made a lovely evening of it. * The show is full of non-stop laughter while being very heartwarming. I can imagine it would be a perfect show to enjoy after a day at the beach in Grand Bend when it travels tto Huron Country Playhouse in Aug/Sept.

I had purchased the tickets as a birthday gift for my best friend of 40 years. Sadly, she was too ill to attend with me. My husband was a reluctant replacement, rolling his eyes at going to a girlie play and proclaiming heroically it was one of "the things he did for love". Well, he laughed heartily at the well-written and well-delivered humour throughout. And we both got a lump in our throats over the poignant but positive ending. We very much enjoyed the ensemble performance abd are recommending it to our friends.

Five really experienced actors gave the play "The Sweet Delilah Swim Club" all they had. The five disparate characters were well played and a great script made for an enjoyable theatre afternoon.

Our main criticism was that the very Southern US accent tended to overpower the action and we missed some of the punch lines even sitting in the third row. The venue is comfortable and welcoming.

We have seen this play before with the title "The Dixie Swim Club".

The theatre experience was very good. We saw Sweet Delila Swim Club.
the first act started off a bit slow but the other 3 made up for it.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Found the theatre a bit chilly, so take along a sweater or jacket in case.
