This little gem resides inside a non-descript building in downtown Pompton Lakes. The Good: Seating - Slope is high so people in front usually dont block the view. Price - Purchased 5 tickets for 1 Broadway ticket costs. Quality - Saw "The Little Mermaid" and was awe struck at how great the performances were. Also, live band in corner did fantastic job. Parking - easy - in back of theatre (how often can you say that?) Staff - Plenty of people making sure everyone got where they needed to be, very attentive to everything including theatre temperature. Cast - After show was over, they invited all children on stage to meet and pose for pictures with nearly all the cast. Very well done. The Bad: Concessions - Smallish space upstairs (theatre entrance) is very crowded during intermission, chips and water. Prices are fair, however. Note: Not allowed to bring food into theatre, so hide something small when your child gets hungry (saw others doing this).
The Mainstage at Rhino Theater is run by greedy owners who who treat their performers horribly. Performers receive no compensation at all- meaning no comp tickets, no discounts for friends/family. They even have to PAY this FOR-PROFIT theater group for their costumes! Cast members also have to pay $40 for a DVD of the performance! There are other places to see shows- I would go somewhere where they treat their performers better.
Rhino Theatre is terrific! High quality productions in a small, yet professional setting. My son has been a part of a few productions and he is very happy as well with Rhino from a performers perspective. He has been treated amazingly and feels like a part of the Rhino family. You can not go wrong with Rhino Theatre either as part of the audience or as an actor!
Lovely and intimate performing space! Incredible and inspiring performance of Spring Awakening... not to be missed! Congratulations to the cast and crew of this very well woven production!
LOVE rhino and especially the owners! Definitely a must visit for some amazing shows.
Dingy, bad accoustics, not good for seniors as it is all steps.
Another great show at Rhino...such creative kids. I loved it.
Saw the Little mermaid with my family. Absolutely fantastic!
