It was our first time attending 4th Line (and last)... We were going for a friends birthday. We called in advance to ask about the seating... They had told us it was plastic lawn chairs. My wife and I were in a car accident a few years ago and have back and leg issues, so we asked if it would be a okay to bring our own chairs and stated "if it wasn't okay, that it was fine, we would just not go"... The person on the phone assured us it would be just fine and suggested we bring our chairs to the box office in advance so they could place them... The night of the play we did just that and told them "we do not care where they are placed as long as it has room for my wife to put her leg up". After 20 minutes or so, a very nice young woman approached us in the eating area and said that" because the chairs were so tall they had to put them right up front", she said "they often do this for relatives of the actors and special guests etc".. Just as the play was to start we went through the line, gave our tickets and found our seats... A very inappropriately dressed young girl approached us in a very loud aggressive voice and said "you can't sit here!! My actors come right through here!! You can sit in those chairs!!" pointing to the plastic lawn chairs... We tried to explain that this was prearranged and that the staff had placed the chairs not us... She said " you can move your chairs up there then" pointing up 2-3 rows in the stand.. We tried to explain to her that the staff had said our chairs were to tall and it would block other peoples view... By this time we were totally embarrassed and my wife had started to cry... I just handed the girl our tickets and told her to give them away... She replied " as if I could give them away 2 minutes away from the show starting".... There was absolutely no attempt at that time to give us our money back or help rectify the situation..... The following week I contacted 4th Line theater to speak to the manager and complain... Turns out that was a mute point, because a day later the manager called back alright, and it was the extremely rude young girl.... She actually runs the place... My complaints fell on deaf ears. She justified everything she did and was totally unprofessional... She did finally offer to give us our money back, but never offered an apology for our troubles.... I can't believe an establishment with the history and reputation they have would put someone like that in charge... We were disgusted

This was my first time attending this venue. Play was well executed ‘Carmel’ based on local history .... actors did a fantastic job bringing history to life! The young girl that played the character Ruth especially gave an amazing performance (no, I don’t know her name, or if she is local talent). Musical, dramatic, funny and a little tear or two. Backdrop for the performance and use of landscape, live animals added to the experience. Seating for infirm is available, lots of field parking, portable toilets, some food and beverage available. They provide a seat cushion, as well as sun visor (if needed for some sunny seats but not necessary) and if packs for the hotter weather.

First time at 4th line. Unexpected Jewel. Bloom is a wonderful show, loved the way the barns and grounds were used as the stage. Cast was great! Can’t wait to go again.

We started our visit with the food vendors (the choices were cabbage rolls, perogies and pulled pork - all good) and a Q&A session under a tent with the playwright, Beau Dixon, and one of the cast members, Geoff Hewitson. Both excellent interviews and that got us excited about the play we were to see. Bloom: A rock and roll fable. Outdoor seating on white plastic chairs, however, the theatre provides cushions which helped. The facilities are, as expected in an outdoor setting, portable outhouse, but they were clean and odour free. The play used all of the spaces around the seating -- from barns to fields to the actual stage. The sound system was good and the actors transported us to another time. Great story line and music. Anyone dressed as a flower-child could get a free item from the concession stand. Although it was the hottest day so far, there was a breeze to make it bearable and the theatre offered free visors and ice packs to help the patrons feel more comfortable.

We caught the July production, Bloom a rock and roll story with a large cast and great music. We arrived on Friday, and enjoyed the food truck and beer tent before going into the play. It was hot, and the bleachers where we sat were in the sun. It was nice of them to pass out ice packs and visors to keep us cool. The play was funny at parts and the music was great, with good voices. The actors all spoke loudly and clearly and seemed to know their cues and lines. It was an enjoyable evening
