I started going to Taproot about 3-4yrs ago and I try not to miss a show anymore. They do an excellent mix of humor and thought-provoking productions. They even have a "Pay What You Can" night. Heartily recommended. I take my daughters also.

Intimate live performance of "This Christmas" feels its way through a labyrinth of character portrayals all wrapped around a core story line that seems to be weaving its way toward the ending already in sight at the start. But new twists keep appearing to make...More

My husband and I love to come to this small neighborhood theater. I am always amazed at the high quality of acting and the care in costumes. I had not expected such remarkable plays from such a small theater.
