    Always… Patsy Cline. Excellent!

    Gloria and Bernard Brennan, Season Ticket Holders,

    Just wanted to know what a GREAT show on Saturday night July 19, 2014!.......Yes, I like country western music, however Patsy Cline music is a little too old for me to get excited over. However, that show Saturday night I DID NOT WANT IT TO END!!!            It reminded me of life's motto: Keep Things Simple.....Erica Harr - perfection.....Sue Hornung - Couldn't have picked any better.......Band - seemed to enjoy themselves and was good!.......I hope that anyone that is a true fan of patsy Cline does not miss this one.  Thanks to who was responsible for picking this show to do. This was one of our all time favorites......p.s. The buffet was excellent also.

    I have been to this theater several times with female family members and it was nothing short of an amazing time. I recently went with my husband for the first time to see the Putnam County Spelling Bee and we also had a wonderful time. He LOVED it! We had dinner included and as always the food was very good, He liked it so much he said "I'd come back here again".

    We have seen Annie and Bye bye Birdie and we had a wonderful experience both times. Our kids (7&9) loved it as much as we did. The performances are impressive and having your waiter be in the show is a fun feature. It is worth every penny.

The Candlelight Theatre is nestled in the village of Ardentown Delaware, a picturesque artistic community established in 1900
