This theatre is small but there isn't a bad seat in the house. The production lasted over two hours with one 15 minute intermission. Well choreographed and enjoyable.

Cozy theater. Didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. We saw HAIRSPRAY - and it was a very well done musical.

This is a huge resort that was filled to capacity, yet we never had the feeling of being overly crowded -- except at day's end, trying to find a parking space.... All of the requisite amenities were present and available. However, the pricing for on site services (e.g., food) was over the top. So, in that respect, do your shopping... More

So my friend let me use his timeshare at Lawrence Welk. This place is amazing great pools, nice restaurant little $$ but the room was beautiful. Very clean, updated, and... More

We have seen so many different plays and shows over the years here at the resort! I love the Magic on Wednesday evenings. And the Holiday review is great to put you in the Christmas spirit! We have seen Phantom and Man from La Mancha! Excellent productions and high quality actors! I would recommend the dinner and show package! You... More

We have seen shows and also other acts such as magic and illusion at the Welk Theater. This trip we saw the excellent Oklahoma show as well as also saw Illusions. Both were fun to see. The history museum of Lawrence Welk in the lobby area is always fun to see again. They are doing some work around the shopping... More

Very impressed with the production, actor quality was 1st rate. Ask for resident discount at the box office.

When you say "Lawrence Welk" usually the term "fuddy duddy" comes to ones mind. For you youngster out there, Lawrence Welk was watched by people from the WWII error and their kids watched and complained every minute of it.. Let me tell you, this man invested and managed a very successful place. Golf is number one here and the courses... More

The venue is very intimate and they have some excellent shows. We shaw Man of La Mancha here as well as Of Mice and Men and since the venue is small you feel apart of the play... not a bad seat in the house
