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

The view and sound in this little theatre is really good. This intimate setting allows the audience to enjoy the show immensely. It is particularly helpful for seniors. The venue is tucked away at The Lawrence Welk Resort, north of Escondido in San Diego County. Plenty of free parking is conveniently located near the theatre. Also, the seats are comfy... More

We saw the California version of Grease. I am a Grease fanatic! Must have seen the movie over 50 times. I know all the scenes and all the music. After watching this version, I was surprised to see that only a few scenes were acted out from the original. There were 2 or 3 scenes that were totally different from... More

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
