We just saw a great show at the Ames Center by the a capella group Home Free. They won the nationally televised TV contest show The Sing Off. It is a nice theater; especially for "south of the river" folks. Reasonably priced quality shows. Also convenient parking. ... There is a nice Mediterranean Restaurant across the street that makes for... More

The Ames Center is a beautiful venue but I can't help but wonder why they don't have a control room in their theaters! We saw the opening of Jekyll and Hyde and the control area was right behind the last row of seats. There was a light on during the entire performance which was very distracting to people in the...

The beauty was the Center! Now called the Ames Center, this is a great, intimate space to enjoy a show. We'll be watching which performers are booking at this venue!

We've driven by hundreds of times and never noticed the place. We went there for a Lorie Line concert, we go where she is every Holiday Season with no regard to location. This was the best one yet. Parking was convenient, and it appears there may not be a bad seat in the house. We liked the place a lot!

This was my first time at the BPAC. I was very impressed. Seemed to be plenty of parking nearby. I enjoyed the Broadway Boys show. I would go back to see another show here. Not a bad seat in the house.

I've been to the Burnsville Performing Arts Center twice now in the last two years. Each time was to enjoy a Lori Line Christmas Concert. There truly isn't a bad seat in the house and the auditorium is large enough to feel somewhat "grand" but small enough to provide that feeling of family and intimacy during a show. It's a... More

New to Burnsville, the Performing Arts Center has many good artists and shows. It is located in the "Heart of the City."

You don't have to go downtown to enjoy high quality performances. Burnsville Performing Arts Center regularly schedules a variety of entertainment venues. The center is a wonderful building and convenient in the heart of the city.
