The quality of theatre here is top notch and a must see for everyone. The outdoor theatre brings a magical setting with outstanding professional performers. Bring along some cushions and blankets to be extra comfortabke. We had a fantastic evening!

We went back to Perchance Theater this summer. Took in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, and “Our Eliza”. Incredible performances from talented actors. We’ve already decided that whatever is to be performed next summer, we’ll be there! Can’t wait!

We thoroughly enjoyed the play tonight. The acting was excellent and the venue felt intimate as always. This was the last performance of this play for this year but I would definitely recommend it if it returns for the 2019 season.

Our Eliza at Perchance Theatre as a top-notch experience. The performance was worthy of a full house, unfortunately many seats were empty. I hope they have an opportunity to take the show to other venues (e.g. LPSU Hall.) My one comment... we were not well...More
