"As a performer, finding a space that is not only comfortable, but feels professional to perform in can sometimes be a difficult task. However, when performing at Saint Mary’s, I always feel accommodated on both of those fronts. From the spacious auditorium and clean dressing rooms, to the kind and caring staff that we are presented with, Saint Mary’s always seems to make our brief stay as performers a time to remember."
