We visit the area once a year and ALWAYS take in a broadway musical at Welk. We've never seen a poor performance--in more than a dozen years. The venue is small and intimate. The shows are professionally produced and we marvel at the dearth of talent available in Southern California. I do wish more current plays were tackled, but I... More

We had the pleasure of attending the Welk Resort Theater on two occasions this trip. The Anthony Hernandez Magic Show is EXCELLENT!!!!! The ticket price is quite reasonable and Anthony and company will delight you with his illusions. One of the final tricks is done in tribute to his grandfather and you may find yourself wiping away a tear or... More

Awesome show!!!!! Anthony and his crews deliver a wonderful show for all ages. His close up magic was amazing, it is as good as or even better than Vegas. I love close up magic, I think that it is very hard to do and Anthony does a wonderful job. This is also a comic show, he keeps us laughing...smaller performance... More

We went to see Welk Illusions show at the Welk Resort Theatre. Anthony Hernadez and his talented group do an outstanding magic show. We have seen him before and it just keeps on getting better and better. Some of the acts were repeats for us, but we loved every minute of the show. For this show, we purchased our tickets... More

We just saw "Hello Dolly" and have seen two or three other shows there over the years. The seating in the theater is great -- not a bad seat in the house. Plus, the talent that they get for the shows would rival any theater in Los Angeles. We also got the buffet dinner along with our tickets and that... More

Cynthia Ferrer as Dolly Levy was great and lead musical to a great show. Attended on a Thursday to a full theater. Time passed quickly with great performances by all. Would suggest you all for times and reservations, may not be available if you just show up

We stayed at the Welk Resort and purchased dinner/theatre tickets for this show. It's a small intimate theatre where almost every seat is good. The dinner was buffet style with roast beef, chicken and fish selections and a variety of side dishes. No complaints on the food. The show was great and the actors were a very good ensemble cast....

We go to all the performances at the Welk Theater. Every show is excellent. Their buffet is excellent, but we prefer to eat at the delightful restaurant. Then I always go shopping in the beautiful shop, where they sell beautiful and unusual garments of all kinds. The whole property is beautiful!
