The performance itself was incredible, and I like that it wasn't an exceptionally large theatre so it was easy to see the show from the "nosebleed" section. However, seating is cramped to the point of being uncomfortable. It nearly made me long for an airline seat. (Seriously!) I heard they may be relocating the theatre; I hope they provide more...

A visit to this theatre is a must for any lover of live theatre. The lobby and waiting areas are spotless and well kept. The cast was very good to excellent, but for me the stage was the draw.

This theater is incredible! I've been attending Hale plays since I was young (before they moved to this theater) and I love the in the round stage. The works here are always top notch and well worth the time and money to see them. This is a fabulous place to see a show.

Took the whole family to Christmas Carol ages 8 - 15. Everyone of them loved the performance... and so did the adults. Very professional and well done performances. Will be back.

The story is still the same but the quality of the actors and venue continues to get better! The cast greeting us afterwards was a very refreshing highlight to the evening. We took our entire family and they all loved it.

I just went to the Hale Theatre for the first time for a work Christmas party and it was a great experience. Hale Theatre is a great place to hold your Christmas parties because there are various reception halls you can reservation to have a magical night. I highly recommend that if you are in town in December to see... More

Was vising in West Valley when a co-worker mentioned seeing "The Christmas Carole" at the Hale Centre Theatre earlier in the week. I called and there were two tickets left! I bought one and what a magnificent way to get into the Christmas spirit!! Lovely venue and very very talented actors! Beautiful voices and the children actors were very good.... More

My wife and I have seen many of their productions over the years and have been season ticket holders for the last two years. They classify themselves as 'community theatre' since the actors are not professionals. But there is nothing second rate about the actors, the production, and the staging. This is a small circular stage so there is absolutely... More

This is an experience you cannot miss! The theatre "in the round" provides everyone with a good seat. There are only about 9 rows all the way around- You are constantly close to the action! The theatre runs a singing and acting school and raises up amazing talent. I have never been disappointed in a single actor or actress. Even... More

I love this theater. There is not a bad seat in the house. It is very intimate, you feel immersed in the story. This is also a great place for a corporate presentation. Nothing bad to say. Prices are even reasonable.
