Enjoyed the magic of illusions during our visit in November 2014. So enjoyable to have a theater production in the Welk Resort. First Class Resort!

The four young women who sang and danced were talented, but we were very disappointed in the show. We understand that theatrical performances here are top-notch and that past Christmas shows have been very good. The story line in this one was corny and not at all what we would expect from a performance in a Welk theater.

Attended what seems to be the last Christmas show at the theater. Mixed music some good some not so good. Your choice . A cast of 4 female singers with some interaction from the audience. One set with no major changes during performance. Was not impressed. Did not meet my Lawrence Welk standards. Looking forward to next season theater, lots... More

This is a great little theater. Any seat is good as it is small with no posts. Even the farthest away seats are close and have a great view.

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

Had to go to a wedding at the gofer-hole golf course on Saturday, and did not want to stay at the Dirty hotel next to them called Tuscany Hills Resort. 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
