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.

We were very pleased with this resort overall. It was well maintained, had numerous pool areas with on site restaurants, Starbucks, shops, etc. We enjoyed several shows at onsite Theater.

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.
