“Extraordinarily beautiful…”

I was very impressed with not only the extraordinarily beautiful auditorium but also by the very friendly and helpful volunteers who were there. Also thank you so much for the “free” popcorn which was an unexpected delight!!!

Theatre is absolutely beautiful. Staff is wonderful. Concession stand is very reasonable. Ticket prices are TOO reasonable not to go regularly. I wish I lived closer.
