Glendale Centre Theatre reviews
Went once again to an amazing performance of BRIGHT STAR (from Steve Martin) - full of singing, dancing and bluegrass music. The cast of professionals brought a tear to my eyes with the poignant... more »
Lovely, theatre in the round. Quality productions presenting a mix of old and new. Comfortable seats, ample bathrooms, and refreshments you can take into theatre ! Just saw Brightstar and was so... more »
Cute theater. They offered beverages and candy/snacks. Polite staff. The show started on time. The performance was really fun and I was entertained the whole time. Restrooms seemed well maintained but were upstairs, and I don't know if there was an elevator for those who cannot wall stairs.
This review is after attending a production of The Pirates of Penzance, March 2019. Glendale Centre Theater is a joy to attend. This was the first production I have seen here and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The family which owns the theatre is clearly dedicated to it by passing it from one generation to the next (which they spoke about during the introduction). All well wishes to them. The lobby is decorated nicely and marks the history of the theater. It is well established and has done numerous productions - something you can see clearly from the amount of regular patrons. For this production, I really enjoyed all the actors in the roles of characters I love. They did a wonderful job. Set design was done very well considering this is a theatre in the round stage. Lighting and sound was awesome. I couldn't see or hear any mistakes during the show (albeit it's been a few years since I was involved in theater), and I'm sure it had to do with how fun the show was to watch. Costumes were also done well, especially the daughters dresses. Overall, I think you'll have a wonderful time with any show they produce here. I am intent on going again.
