Season Ticket Holder from the first show. 10+ years ago. One of the best purchases I've ever made. Fantastic show's by professional SAG performers.

Just saw "In The Heights" here, and it was excellent. The lighting, staging, singing, dancing was worthy of Broadway. The talent is top notch. So glad we have this in our area!

The John Engeman Theatre puts on Broadway quality productions. The casts are of high quality and they have been offering some of the outstanding Broadway hits. They also have a series of children's shows which are very well done.
