This is a wonderful community centre, The Charlie White Theatre has a lot of number 1 performances and every seat in the house is greAt to see and to hear.

We enjoyed a big band concert, with a singer from Calgary. The on-line ticket process works well and the ticket sellers at the venue are very friendly and accommodating. The theatre itself is well equipped with comfortable chairs and good sight-lines. The sound was high quality, and the show was most enjoyable.

Was there with friends for the annual Christmas dinner. The building and restrooms are very clean and cozy like. There were many Christmas displays and things happening here. I enjoy going here for many different functions during the year.

A treasure for the area. Not big enough to host A list performers, but large enough to bring in many interesting plays and artists. Charlie White theater is a great show room. Friendly staff.

I have seen numerous plays at MWC. The lighting and acoustics are great. I have also attended some concerts and the size makes it feel quite intimate.
