Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We thoroughly enjoyed the cabaret held last night at Milton Theater- classics from the American canon of song, performed beautifully by four singers and a stellar band of guitar, piano and drums. Encore!

We love Milton Theater, truly love. We donated $300 to their balcony level and raved about them to our friends. Today I called and spoke to manager, Katelyn. I told her that over about a 9 month period we had purchased tickets at full price because their online system did not recognize us as members…which we are! I’m sure the whole problem could be easily proven in their records. I asked if we could be compensated for just the last show in some way…. free drinks, cookies, etc. to which she said no. We weren’t even suggesting payback for the many shows, just one! Approx $6. I tried to reason with her but she was adamant. She did acknowledge that the online system was not working properly, but she could not refund from that system. Again, the jester of a free beverage would have sufficed, but she still refused to pass on good customer service. We have loved seeing the Milton theater grow and flourish even through Covid, but the manager is hurting herself and the theater by being defensive and stonewall’ish to good paying customers. We are not people to complain and post nasty comments. This experience however was so unpleasant and unexpected we felt the public should know.

I absolutely love this theater. Everyone is so wonderful, they really go out of their way to keep you happy. I have seen three shows, and my husband has seen five. He decided to become a member today. I wish them success in all their endeavors.

A group of friends and I recently went here to see a Neil Diamond tribute. The seating is great, you can have a seat up front in rows or in the back they have high top tables. There are drinks and plenty of snacks to choose from. Lots of great shows offered!

Saw the Britpack show last night with a close to sell out audience. The four man band rocked through the decades of the 60's, 70's and 80's and finished with the audience on its feet and wanting more. The whole band was tight and vocalist Matt Nakoa had an amazing range and stage presence. Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Elton John and Queen are just some of the covers the band played with a lot of energy and tight lead guitar.
First time at the Milton Theatre and for the most part an excellent experience. Staff and volunteers are super friendly and helpful. The atmosphere and vibe is enhanced with the historic, exposed brick wall feel and even from the very back, where we were happy to be you have a great view and close up feel.
Yeah are the bar stools at the high tops slightly uncomfortable and very "rickety"? Sure they are and probably should be replaced, but this organization relies on grants, fundraisers, membership and volunteers so I get it. After all where can you get this quality live music for the price of a $25 ticket?
And does the food need a little more attention to detail? Yes again. Nobody is looking for a culinary experience, but the hot dogs and pretzels need to be close to warm or hot and we overheard someone mentioning luke warm coffee. But in my book those items are minor and didn't really detract from an otherwise excellent night out.
I'm becoming a member and you should too!

My husband, friends, & I went to see a live show here recently and loved it. The acoustics were wonderful, & all seats had a great view of the stage. There is snack type food available with everything ordered and brought to you right at your seats. Definitely is not going to be our last visit here.

We've been attending the Milton Theater ever since it's reopening about 4 years ago under the skillful leadership of Fred Munzer. They currently offer over 350 events annually which include live performances by a wide variety of genres, classic films, paranormal readings and a variety of children's classes to promote interest in the arts.

Having met Streisand tribute singer Carla DelVillaggio some 3 years ago during one of her many performances at the Milton, we fell in love with both the theater and her renditions of classic Barbara tunes.

Her most recent holiday show began with classic holiday songs setting the festive atmosphere while reminiscing through Streisand's songbook. The second act included mostly favorites "Somewhere" from the West Side Story and "Imagine" of the Beatles fame accompanied by interesting thought provoking visuals projected on the large screen.

We are blessed to have a community theater which offers such an amazing variety of events for reasonable prices. Even the VIP front rows are only about $30 and include small tables and wait service for refreshments.

If you enjoy live performances or even viewing classic films come support your local theater especially as they continue their $2.5 million capital fund drive to restore this asset to its 1920's original glory including adding the original balcony and a full length marquis with exterior balcony overlooking quaint Milton and the Broadkill Creek.

A while back I wrote a review and my final comment on that review was the theater is destined for greatness. That was evident yesterday with their production of Next to Normal. It was flawlessly directed, sung and acted. I found myself drawn into the proceedings with awe and astonishement. I witnessed quality of performances that I have never seen in this area in the 13 years I have been here.

I have been to the Milton Theatre twice in the last two months. What a great venue!! You can see great from any seat and you can sit comfortably and not feel squished or that your knees are under your chin.

They offer such a variety of shows, I will definitely be a frequent customer.

We go to all types of events here and rarely do they disappoint. Music, Comedy, all the shows were great. Average prices for drinks and snacks but more of a variety these days.
