Typically PacRep is wonderful. We've been to at least 30 plays between their two theaters, Golden Bough and the outdoor forest theater. We've had friends and family perform in some of their shows and we've even donated money to them. Last night I attempted to buy tickets online through their vendini site as well as the ticket link from their... More

I loved the small, cozy atmosphere, yet they have all the amenities. This theater has many special memories for me. No real drawbacks. I highly recommend it.

Visited with my teenager nieces and a fun thing to do locally. The show was great, people really friendly and welcoming. Local talent was great.

Pac Rep is a locally created and owned theatrical company that produces excellent plays and musicals of high quality that one has come to expect from Stephen Moorer and his company of actors and musicians.

YOu don't have to go to Los Angeles or San Francisco for good theatre. Pacific Repertory Theatre has a great corps of actors who do a superb job with everything from Shakesphere to current dramas and comedies. Two theatres -- Golden Bough and Circle -- if you are here and there is a play or two going on, don't miss... More

we previously saw it in san francisco in a theater 100 (!) times larger than this one. The cast worked extremely hard and it showed, to perfection. The four-piece orchestra also worked hard, playing the entire show. The theater is certainly worth taking time to viksit.

We went to the Buddy Holly concert. Their must have been 150-200 in attendance. The show was very entertaining. People were actually dancing in the aisles. I recommend this for a fun night.

What a talented group of musicians and singers who presented "Buddy Holly and Friends." The performers transformed their costumes and personas to sing songs performed by various artists of the 50's and 60's. After the intermission, they performed songs by later rock n roll artists like Dylan, Stones, Cher, Mamas and Papas. They got us dancing and clapping in the... More

The Golden Bough operates on a shoestring (a "twig", maybe/), but produces Broadway-quality performances. If you want a taste, go see "Buddy!" this summer.
