Saw a great show in Sound Of Music . Great outdoor venue for a show. You probably want to bring binoculars as seats halfway back or more are out of really good viewing range. The sound system is excellent; clear, loud enough with no distortion. Only downside is the walking paths are all flat/ inclined which is great for wheelchairs... More

People that run the place are very nice and helpful. Many eating options and many drinking options. Not really a bad seat in the house. Always fun at Starlight.

Had a great time at the Steely Dan concert. Great venue! Plenty of food and drink available, at slightly inflated prices.

A wonderful warm night led us to the production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat! The production was outstanding, the cast wonderful and charming! The theater is lovely and truly not a bad seat in the house.

I went here to see Steve Miller Band and Journey and it was perfect. They use the best of the area and have lots of great seating, a nice south lawn, and plenty of food and drinks kiosk. I went backstage and that was very cool as well. the Open air seat up makes for a great summer show.

We (from Woodward, OK) met my brother and his wife (from St. Louis) to see the Willie Nelson concert. We were really impressed with this venue! The acoustics were great and the staff were too. We would love to explore this place further.
