Great show! Extremely well done and totally entertaining. The theatre is small with a big heart. Great seating, you feel like you are in the middle of the play. Will definitely go again.

It was worth driving almost two hours from Toronto, just to see "Shear Madness" and participate in this amazing show. Actors were AAA improvising! Audience was AAA engaged! You left AAA memories. Would love to watch it again!
The Schoolhouse Theatre is a fine cute place for interactive and engaging show like "Shear Madness".

Don't miss this one! Everything from the actors, the staging, the dialogue (some actually ad libbing which was perfect! Have seen many plays in my lifetime (long) and this one is on the short list! Kudos to the performers. Also excellent venue with the table seating....every seat is a good one. If I lived closer (live in Florida) I would likely go to every production as my experience with these smaller theatres has always been great! We ate lunch at the Stone Crock just 1.5 blocks away, and walked to the theater after lunch...lunch was great also,

P.S. have to check "friends" below as though we are family (4 sisters) your division of Family(young children) and Family (teens) fails to cover us, but we are indeed friends!

We appreciate hearing from those near and far that have come to see one of our productions. Thank you for sharing your enjoyment of the show and venue with everyone.

This fast moving performance kept me laughing and the actors/actresses were some of the best I have ever had the pleasure to see and hear. There was some ad-libbing which spiced up the play. I did not know what to expect but if I lived closer, I would attend more plays and performances at the St. Jacobs Schoolhouse Theatre. I hope this play comes to Ottawa because it was so very funny I would see it again and bring the family.

Thank you for joining us for Shear Madness. It sounds like you had a great time. The show has some great comedic parts and gives the cast liberty to do some ad-libbing. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts on the show.
