I haven't been to the Welk Theater in many years but ventured to see Cabaret. I was amazed at the quality of the performance!! The actors were superb, the set perfect and the orchestra was terrific. I particularly liked the small venue, as it made you feel you were actually at the Kit Kat Klub in Berlin as the story... More

It may be a place geared to the retired with grandchildren crowd but WOW! We went to see Cabaret, it was wonderful, nice small theatre, I doubt there is a bad seat in the house. There is a nice lounge a short short walk from the theatre where my friend and I enjoyed a wonder time of chatting and drink... More

My wife and I were staying at the Elk Resort and received complimentary tickets for this show. We would have paid..... it was a delight. It was the first time I've seen this production. It was quite different and I enjoyed the entire thing. BTW it ends abruptly.

This dark show was done excellently by the cast and crew of the Welk Theater, San Diego. It is interesting that the shows timing coincides closely to the Jewish Remembrance of the Holocaust. No one I saw left the theater without some introspection of the event of the 1930's and 1940's and the terrible effect on humanity.

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
