You should give it try. I try to catch every single performance when I can.

Darin O., Honolulu
The shows are so well produced, so thoughtful in execution and just delivered well that it is a shame that they are so short run in their calendar.  Always a wonderful production.

Very interesting and varied selection of plays. Creative set design and costuming, impressive caliber of acting, helpful and friendly staff and volunteers.
