Wonderful Venue

This is such a great venue for concerts.. there isn't a bad seat in the house! Usually there are some affordable tickets no matter what the event.

We visited for a Christmas production. It was really enjoyable, including a private reception in one of the side rooms. The setting was good for a local theater -- feeling intimate. This is a good asset for the community it serves, including good freeway access and more than ample parking.

Went to the Brian Setzer Christmas concert, and the venue was really easy to find from its I-101 exit. However, be warned, if you need refreshments like coffee, be prepared to stop off and load up before getting the venue or be prepared to stand in long lines to buy Oregon rain water, beer, wine, or a cup for the...

I saw Transcendence Theater's Production "Joy To The World" last weekend. I thought it was thoroughly entertaining and the venue was terrific. Seems that everyone 'had a good seat', and the acoustics were marvelous.

In most theaters, the stage is much higher than the seats. Also, in most theaters, as you walk down the aisle towards the seats, it's clearly a downhill slope. These two things allow you to see over the heads of the people in front of you. This also allows you to see everything on stage. In this theater, the stage... More

This is an excellent venue, and they have many popular attractions. We live half way between Santa Rosa and San Francisco, and we actually prefer to go to the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts because it is easily accessible from the freeway, there is ample free parking, and the theatre itself is a good size with no bad seats....

I went there with my BFF to see 2CELLOS. We had a great night. I was a little worried about the seat because they sold out faster than I expected and we got tickets further away from the stage than I had hoped to get but it didn't matter at all. The layout was perfect for clear views and the... More

I have attended several concerts and the yearly Christmas Program. The seating is comfortable and still small enough where parking is not a problem. Very good entertainment.

Not a bad seat in the place. You cannot go wrong seeing a show here, I see several every year and have never been disappointed. Even the cheapest seats are great so don't sweat it, parking is free and easy, I cannot say enough. We are lucky to have this gem here in our little county.

It's a great small up close & personal venue. Getting into the parking lot and getting out is a bit of a pain but to be expected at any venue. Eat before hand, they don't v serve food or at least they haven't at any of the events I have attended. They do serve beverages; alcohol, sodas and water. But... More
