Finally had an opportunity to enjoy this well thought-out theatre facility----We found the architectural plan to be brilliant. Spacious, airy, common areas easy to access, well situated food and beverage stations, and basic floor plan of the theatre provided comfortable viewing of the stage. Ushers were efficient and informative. Our venue presented GINO VANNELLI--- and with his horn section as... More

This was such a great show and wonderful venue. Music was right on! Performers were great. Audience was up, swaying, clapping, dancing, and the "energy" was really, really, uplifting. Would go and see it again in an instant. Am recommending it to everyone I know. Go and See this show.

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
