We bought their summer series . It's wonderful to see local talent. The theatre isn't much but presents a small intimate experience. It was is wonderful to be greeted by the performers at the show's end.

We went to see "Lend Me A Tenor" produced by a new theatre group called, "Palm Desert Stage Company" and frankly we were astounded by the professionalism and quality of the production. The theatre is very intimate at 160 seats which made for a very exciting theater experience...The ticket price at $25.00 can't be beat for such an amazing night... More
