If you get a chance, try to get tickets for a performance at the Clark Center. This theatre seems to be an anomaly, sitting out adjacent to farm fields and a high school, but it is very comfortable, is usually filled by patrons and locals and caters to a simpler taste in performances; country, comedians, vocal arts, some orchestral/band music...

A very nice center for plays, concerts, and live acts of all kinds. Plenty of free parking, reasonable priced admissions, and a small town atmosphere makes the Clark Center very pleasurable.

Always a great time at the Clark Center. We are lucky to have this venue in South County. Well organized volunteers/staff, and comfortable place to gather/meet/watch a performance.

The Clark Center for the Performing Arts is a gorgeous venue with the best seats, sound and entertainers and restrooms! I have attended 2 performances in the past week and going to another this evening. Every seat in the house is fantastic and the sound is wonderful too. Please do yourself a favor for the new year and become a... More

We are a local school of music who has biannual concerts for our students. Every time we come to the Clark Center, we are so impressed with the people who make sure everything happens for us. Susan, the stage manager, Wendy, the office manager, and Rick, the operations manager, all go out of their way to make our concerts spectacular.... More

The Clark Center gives you a big city performance and atmosphere in a small town. The venue is great and everything is well organized.

Loved the comfortable seating & sizable lobby. Good acoustics. Parking was a bit inconvenient as there was school vehicles & construction equipment in the mid-distance parking forcing the majority of folks to park at the far end of the lot. No biggie, but with almost 600 folks in attendance those other spots would have been quite welcome :)

I was in town for a video presentation that was held at the Center. It was a little difficult to find as it is right next to the high school but the bushes cover the name of the center up so I had to make a couple of passes by it before I realized it wasn't part of the school.... More
