"An Amazing and Beautiful Theatre"

“The perfect place to get away and enjoy a show. The talent here is beyond and the staff and volunteers are fantastic. It’s great to have such an amazing and beautiful theatre in our community.”

"Never Had an Experience I Didn't Enjoy"

“Never had an experience I didn't enjoy. If you need accessible parking drive right up to the entrance and ask. Often there is a golf cart waiting, or one will be returning, to take you down the steep hill to the theatre. Otherwise plan that your visit will include a short walk of 10 minutes or so from one of the many (one-way) streets in the area. Arrive early to enjoy the view over the river and some of the Thousand Islands. It will likely be breezy whatever the time of year so on a hot day expect cooler weather.”

"Actors Were Amazing"

“We saw the comedy Perfect Wedding. The venue is a perfect size. There were no mics yet we could hear everything easily. The actors were amazing. The show was well written. We will definitely be going back for more shows even with the minor inconvenience of the border crossing. Everyone was very friendly.”
