Nice facility...although lobby furniture is showing its age. Theatre seats are comfortable. The shows are well presented in this professional arts centre; sound & light techs do a great job. Heartwarming knowing my children have performed on the same stage at Stuart McLean. Great variety...More

Thus is a very nice well kept up venue.. very clean and comfortable. There's is a coat check and a refreshments bar. There is always an art exhibit to look at and admire too that is constantly changing. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
