We have been owners at the Welk Resort San Diego for 23 years. We spend a week in our villa every summer. We have created many memories over the years. Last year, we even celebrated my parents 60th anniversary here. This year, we attended the Local Craft Brewery Beer tasting event given by Scott Black. Scott was very knowledgeable about... More

My family has been vacationing here one week a year since 1992. My grandparents own the timeshare. We always have a lot of fun here whether it be relaxing in the villa, by the pool, playing ping pong or pool, or attending shows. We always look forward to being there all year long. A lot of things have changed over... More

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
