Have been going to Welk Resorts Theatre for years. Have never been disappointed. They are always great productions and have wonderful talented performers. Theatre is not too large, so no bad seats in the house.

Every Wednesday night at the Welk Resort Tony Hernandez, his partner and their assistants put on an incredible performance. Discounted admission for resort guests. It was outstanding! Entertaining, interactive, engaging and both Tony and his partner (her name escapes me) take things to a personal level with the audience. Our family thoroughly enjoyed this show.

I enjoy a scrumptious buffet dinner or lunch and then a show at the Welk Resorts. Every production presented there is worthy of your attention, especially the musicals. Josh Carr and Ray Limon do a spectacular job behind the scenes to cast, produce and direct some mighty fine entertainment right outside San Diego. You can take in a matinee at... More

This is an excellent magic show we saw on our last visit with a party ages 3 to 93 years and everyone was thrilled and amazed. I saw David Copperfield doing illusions as a young man and Anthony and his talented band of entertainers could well be better, and are better comedians too.

We saw Fiddler on the Roof during our stay at the Welk Resort. We got two tickets for doing the timeshare sales pitch. I think you can get 2 tickets for $88 with the vip pass. Next time I would just pay the money and skip the pitch. The theatre is more long than deep, I'd guess maybe 10 rows... More
