I’ve seen many shows here: Leo Kotke, Rodney Crowell, the Motels, Dark Star Orchestra, Peking Acrobats, Glenn Miller Orchestra and many more. Sound and lighting are both great and really not a bad seat in the house.

They are fortunate to obtain world class entertainment like the Chinese Acrobats but they also have very affordable entertainment like The Sons Of The San Joaquin Western Band.

Seating is nice and you can see well from most locations in the theatre. Very local vibe and pretty well organized.

The Clark Center always has a wide variety of productions to choose from- local events to outside venues. We love the variety, the ease of purchasing tickets online, comfortable seating, outstanding restrooms, and free, easy parking.
