    “An excellent evening out!”

    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".

    “Top rate performance and fun for the whole family”

    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.

Candlelight’s updated ‘Nunsense’ is a lot of fun

Maybe it was eight years of Catholic grade school (St. Madeline-St. Rose, now St. James Regional), and four years of Catholic college (Neumann University), but I was a little hesitant to see a comedy about nuns. Sisters are stern and upright. How could it possibly be funny? How wrong I was.  READ MORE
