They have many different "shows", and some were probably better than the ones we saw. If you are really old or really young, you might enjoy it more.

Especially if you are staying on property, this is a great venue for usually Broadway-style, family-friendly shows. We happened to see a one-person, one-act event that was quite good. You can't beat the intimate size of the facility. A great alternative to going "downtown" to some big building. Professionally done and reasonably priced.

This is a great little theater in Escondido. They put on numerous productions during the year. They also put on special events during the week such as magic shows, etc. This is because it is close to the Welk Resort Time Shares. Both locals in the area and visitors enjoy going to the shows. Given the size of the theater,... More

It isn't a Broadway production, but it is very professional and lots of fun. No bad seats! Older audience for the most part.

There is a fascinating mini museum in the theater lobby. The giant champagne glass, vintage tv camera, photos, and other memorabilia illustrate the Welk muscial legacy. Because it's so difficult to work my favorite Welk trivia into normal conversation, I'm sharing it here: earlier names for his band were the Hotsy Totsy Boys and later, the Honolulu Fruit Gum Orchestra....

Everyone in our group used to watch the Lawrence Welk show and likes older music and performers. So we were excited about going to this show to hear Christmas music. In the end, we were very disappointed. Please note: when we bought the tickets, it was billed as The Welk Family Christmas Show with no specific entertainers mentioned. When I... More
