Too often local theater is overlooked. Whenever people do decide to go to the theater, it’s typically to see a traveling broadway production.

Broadway is great, but the productions that are right next door are oftentimes just as good.

Local theatre offers all sorts of plays, from musicals to Shakespeare. It also helps that the ticket prices are usually less than $20.

The upcoming season of shows offers a wide variety of productions to choose from:
