We went to see the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. The show was excellent, the audience was enthusiastic and all the people working the event were helpful and pleasant! Altogether a wonderful experience, I highly recommend attending any event at the Zeiterion!

great place to see a show or concert, close to the downtown area. lots of places to go to after the show, like Knuckleheads bar and grill and black whale. There beer and alcohol could use some updating.

Saw Darlene Love here. Great sound, great box office, classic hall, and volunteer ushers. Everyone happy and friendly. Convenient parking. Might come up here just to see another show!

The theater interior is stunning. It's wonderful to have such a lovely venue close by. Tickets can be a bit pricey,but for the most part it's a good value.

We took our son to see his first play - Sound of Music - at this wonderful theater. There was some great talent on display that exceeded expectations. Parking was easy and there were lots of places nearby to eat before the show. Will definitely go back for future performances.
