Plaid Tidings Show

Great show. Talented singers. Nice story with a touch of humor. Everyone was laughing and singing along. It was a nice kick off to the Christmas season.

I wasn't sure what to expect and expected a hokey magic show. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to see a complate show of illusions, quick wit and overall great fun, that lasted about two hours. Definitely a bargain for the price of the show.

We were totally enthralled and entertained watching Anthony and his assistants perform their unique magic show. His stories touch your heart and his art of illusion baffles the mind. I personally laughed as hard as I have laughed in years during a particular segment of the show. If you have an opportunity to see him, GO. Taterdogs819

We saw at the Sweet Charity show and were amazed at how good it was! The lead Actress was wonderful, had great character and great voice, it was an overall outstanding production. Highly recommend the theatre and its professionalism.

Excellent show for all ages - have been there a couple times - in 2015 and this week. He and his assistants do a fabulous job - keeps you wondering how he does all the tricks. Highly recommend and be sure to ask for VIP discount if staying at the resort.

Play was well performed by the local thespians. It started a little late due to a guy threatening to jump off a local highway bridge near the theater. Enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon and was preceded by full buffet at the Canyon Grill. The bread pudding was especially good.

Have liked many of their shows. Not a huge theater so it's nicer than most. If you have time before or after the show, take the short ride to Deer Park Winery Car Museum.
