This is a great "little" theater to see a show. Only 240 seats (stadium style seating) means that there isn't a bad seat in the house. The seats are also assigned and you can select seats online or by phone. The show choices are good, the acting is also good. (This is community theater, so it's not Broadway, but still good to great performances depending on the show.)
The pluses, good seating, nice folks, good acting and free soda at intermission! wow, who does free anything anymore? Tickets are reasonable also.
The minuses, well, it's not Broadway quality, but this is rural South Carolina. That also means the shows selected are not going to be too far outside the "blue hair brigade's" realm of what is allowed. Rocky Horror is a stretch and kudos to the people running the theater for allowing something outside the ordinary.
Really there aren't too many negatives. The theater is run professionally and the lights and sound system are above average. Any show done at Flowertown is at the mercy of who shows up to audition, but the shows are generally above average in quality. The theater is clean, the seats are comfortable and the shows deliver.
Plenty of parking as well, so compared to Charleston, the show is the only cost. It's worth the drive to Summerville.
Now, as to my review (4 Stars) that is a comparison to community theater as a whole. I've been to a few theaters up and down the east coast and Flowertown is as good or better than most of them.
