We saw Rock of Ages with friends who are members of this playhouse. They said that the show was one of the best. We loved the talent, story, music, sets, costumes and general feel of being up close and personal with the play.

We were there for closing night of rock of ages. The theater is a intimate please to see a show. Some of the singers did not have a strong voice, but all could act. Had a great time.
