  • We have seen a number of shows here and it is a very nice regional theater. It was built not too long ago so still very nice. Plenty of good restaurants right next door and large free parking garage across the street. They have a full range of events from shows, dance, classic movies, music, etc.
  • Our first time here and our first time seeing the Nutcracker. We absolutely loved it! The show was amazing and the theater was great! It doesn't look like there's a bad seat in the place. My 4 year old loved it and was offered a booster seat. We will definitely be back for other shows
