This castle-shaped theatre provides live entertainment for the whole family. Pax Amicus specializes in contemporary drama, comedies and musicals, as well as a full season of theater-for-young-audiences. The venue is also the home of Castle Shakespeare, a professional acting company now approaching its 20th year in residence.

Of Special Note:

  • Founded in 1970 by two high school teachers with a vision
  • The Castle, once a community center, was remodeled to look like a castle in 1977, and is now a local landmark
  • The adjacent Estelle’s garden is lovely for picnicking and as a wedding venue
  • A Tudor-style beach house by the lake is available for parties, picnics, classes, meetings and receptions
