A delightful experience at this gem of a theater! The play was very funny and well acted. Our seats in 3rd row center were excellent. A great venue to see live theater. Only suggestion is more lighting in the parking lot.

We try to get here at least once a year. Never a disappointment. Their newer restaurant Cast and Cru also has amazing food.

The theatre smelled musty. Not sure if that’s because we have had incredibly hot humid weather or just an indication of age. The performers were great; still humming Son of a Preacher Man a week later! Loved the message of the show and ending with...More

We were here for BEEHIVE. As soon as we walked in we knew there might be some issues. The sign on the bar read something like this- "YES-YES you may bring your drinks into the theater" This is never good. Of course not everyone who...More

I’m not sure what park you mean at Old Log Theater. Parking is free. Walking around outside is free. You pay for tickets to see a show and you pay for food and drinks.
