“It was a thrill and a pleasure having my plays staged in a weekend run at Arts at the Chocolate Factory, under Frank Marquette's expert and experienced guidance and care. I look forward to again having my work performed in this comfortable, actor-friendly space--and before its uniformly receptive audiences!”

-Tom Cherwin, playwright/director



​“I recently had the privilege of producing my play, "My Very First Mid-Life Crisis" at Arts at The Chocolate Factory with Frank Marquette. The space was perfect for the show, which consisted of 4 characters. Frank facilitated all of our production needs and made the entire experience enjoyable. The audience found Arts at The Chocolate Factory to be "A breathe of fresh air," and "reminiscent of the off-Broadway theaters of  NYC."  Frank's space is a true gem for actors and theater-goers alike.”

-Nadeen Currie, playwright
