Great community Playhouse featuring local talent. Original play we saw was good. Actors love what they are doing. 3 stars because of wonky box office service. Tried to buy tickets online using gift certificates. When going to pay /pick up tickets the day of the show, they would not use gift certificate and had to use credit card. No an 80.00 expense I planned on. And I still have gift certificates. Have to go to box office directly to buy tickets. Really inconvenient. They asked if I had read to posting online saying you cannot use gift certificates-aparently I hadn't seen it. Make this more noticeable, please.

The Playhouse provides great theater with local talent, and tonight even a world premiere event watching "Choice". A great brand new comedy. Give the Playhouse a try and you will fall asleep n love with the stories they share. The sound was perfect and the acting was amazing. I was wisped away to the scene to become an onlooker in the corner. You'll have a great time.

Wonderful venue and always a great cast. Such amazing local talent, and never a bad seat in the house. I've been coming here for years, and can't wait to see the renovation next summer ('18).

It was my first visit. Liked this place. I did not know about this place earlier. I hope to visit often here to watch the play.
