We had Orchestra seats and luved the experience. First time to enjoy a wonderful stage show at the McCallum Theatre. They have so many great shows and events going on there almost daily with matinees and evening shows. Good parking.

There is a different performance here almost every night. I'm a musician, so I'm picky about theatres. We saw an amazing concert here during our stay. Not only was the performer terrific, but the staff and sound operators were first-rate. Events here are often sold out, I'm told, and it was the night I was there. There's lots of leg... More

Spent the evening at the McCallum Theatre enjoying Rain-A Tribute to the Beatles. This is a lovely facility. Arrive early and enjoy beverages and snacks prior to show. Self Parking is very accessible or use valet for a small fee. All of the ushers and staff were super nice and helpful. The auditorium is not too big and it looked... More

This theatre is gorgeous with very comfortable seating and good viewing from every seat. An excellent choice of performances for every taste. Three of us visiting the area enjoyed the show very much and the ticket costs were reasonable.

We were visiting the area and found out a show was in town that we were looking forward to. We bought the tickets on-line and really enjoyed the show. A great venue!

The McCallum never disappoints and an evening at the 17th Annual Choreography Festival is a prime example of the quality of programing one comes to expect at The McCallum. The dance festival features some of the newest dance and talented dancers of the day. The music is as varied as the dance program. We were spell bound for the entire... More

This is an excellent theater with a varied calendar of events. We enjoyed a piano concert, "Three Steinways, Six Hands". We will be returning in February to see "The Scottish International Military Tattoo".

Little theater, big voices, great scenery. Lots of fun on a stage. Draws from the valley as well as beyond for incredible talent.
