A great place to take the children to to wonderful kid friendly performances..our grandchildren love it and everyone from the employees to the dedicated volunteers who give their time are just great..What a beautiful place for a evening of fun..We prefer to sit no higher then level two as level three is too steep incline.

Saw Mannheim Steamroller and it was an excellent experience there. Not to much on leg room, but the theatre is wonderful. No matter where you sit it has great sound and view.
