The new season has started with another great performance. The theatre has changed to different days and you need to go to their website to see what is available. We were there for the 1:00pm show and it was full packed. Great show, great singers and actors, actress and children. The time went by very quickly and over 2 hours... More

I've enjoyed several performances at the Welk Theatre. The intimate size is a plus for the audience as they can really see and hear the performers and get a full appreciation of the production. The King and I was well acted, the music was very good, and he costumes were eye candy.

Anthony Hernandez performed at our son's 50th birthday celebration. He made the party a tremendous success. He did walk around during the reception and performed a show after dinner. He included guests throughout the party and everyone raved about his performance with his assistant Dawn. His concluding act with our son was a showstopper!! We were thrilled to have gotten... More

The Award Winning Illusionist Anthony Hernandez from the Magic Castle in Hollywood California was Awesome during his performance at the Lawrence Welk Resorts in Escondido this week. His magical night of interaction with the Audience was fun for everyone. I have seen many Illusionist over the years, but the variety of Illusions in his show and the sincerity in which... More

Four of us attended a production of The King & I while staying at the Welk Resort in Escondido, CA. The theatre is small and was nearly full when we attended the show; every seat is a good one. We sat in Row C, which is close to the stage, so our seats allowed us to really see the costumes... More

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
