If you have an opportunity to visit this place, I suggest that you take advantage of it. We wee in the upper level villas with a view to the West across the golf course. Lots of activities during the entire day, every day of the week for all family members. Restaurant has a better than average buffet and the theater... More

This show was festive, fun and entertaining. The four actors/singers were so talented as were the musicians. The show was full of music and comedy. The theater is a nice size theater. Refreshments were available. There are several pieces of memorabilia to look at in the theater.

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.
