All seats are folding chairs, but at least padded. 4 large screens so every seat has a good view. We had general admission seating, and found that the front row was best as each section is tired up a step. No issues with seeing over those in the row ahead of us. General admission is 1st come 1st seated so... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the musical Josiah. Very tastefully done. Players all have excellent voices. You won't get bored at all during this long play. Definitely recommend this play. After the play you can meet all the cast.

Have enjoyed many different shows here. Each year plays, gospel and country music artists are featured.

Saw the musical "Josiah for President". WOW, what great performers, voices and play. We brought another couple to the play with us. The other couple's husband was not thrilled to be going to a play, much less a musical. At the end of our 10 day vacation together this play at the Blue Gate Theater was his favorite thing we...

We were at the Blue Gate Theater in Sept. 2014 and purchased 4 tickets (2 couples) for the Isaacs. Music and Theater were good and we enjoyed the show. However, if you are buying your tickets close to the performance date, double check the web site for availability. We were told (without her even looking) there weren't any available for... More

We attended a concert at the Blue Gate Theater featuring a young, pop artist. Unfortunately, much of the music was lost in the very poor acoustics in the long, narrow room. The room appeared similar to several hotel banquet rooms opened into one large room with a relatively low ceiling. The theater seating comprised of crowded rows of cushioned folding... More

We returned to the Blue Gate Theater again for New Year's Eve 2014. It was great as always. Dinner before the shows was also excellent. The three shows of the evening were great. This is a perfect way to celebrate New Year's Eve - low key, safe, and relaxing.

We have been to several programs and concerts at the Blue Gate and have never been disappointed. The theater is very comfortable and there is not a bad seat in the house! The gospel concerts we've seen have been outstanding as well as the play we saw as well as other performers. All programs are suitable for all ages and... More
