We took our three young granddaughters to see The Wizard of Oz on our recent visit to Glendale. This was a great time! This theater in the round has nothing but fine seats, and we were especially impressed with the costuming, energy, and professionalism of this community group. They do three children's shows a year with several performances, including matinees.... More

This theater has been here since the mid 1940's. It is quaint, and relatively small. Every few months, they have a different play. Usually the acting is pretty good. Overall, a good experience, where just about every seat is good because it is a theater in the round, so the whole crowd can see all the action going on.

I was a parent volunteer when I came here. The theater was a small and cozy, with a European, old theater feel. We watched Beauty and the Beast and it was awesome! The actors kept the viewers engaged. It was a great short version of the story. (an hour or so). It was filled with a crowd of mostly school... More

I was amazed to see this really small theatre be so beautiful and have such a talented cast! I went to see My Fair Lady. It was just perfect.

The Glendale Center Theatre is a wonderful family experience. Reasonably priced, comfortable seats and easy freeway access from the I 5 or the 134. I've never seen a performance I haven't throughly enjoyed. I'd suggest getting there early and going to Damon's Steak House right behind the theatre for a delicious steak dinner before the play. You won't be sorry.

We have been going to the Glendale Centre Theatre on and off for decades. After our most recent visit to see Arsenic & Old Lace, I think we need to come more often! As others have mentioned, there is not a bad seat in this theatre in the round. I love how intimate the place feels and how close you... More

For over 60 years, the Glendale Center Theater has been presenting great programs. Last night was no exception. We began with dinner at a nearby restaurant, and then walked over to the theater. The cast provided us with a well-acted and very funny rendition of Arsenic and Old Lace. The theater was filled to capacity. (There’s not a bad seat... More

We went to this theatre to Arsenic and Old Lace recently. It was wonderful. We used to attend the theatre here all the time when we lived in the area. Now... 30 years later, it is still producing good quality theatre at a reasonable price. No bad seats in the house

The Glendale Center Theater just celebrated it's 68th anniversary and offers the best entertainment value available. The theater is in-the-round and features live plays thoughout the year. Currently, Guys And Dolls is running and I saw it last Saturday evening. What a fantastic performance! Well acted with great choreography and at a price that anyone can afford. Each play is... More

We saw 'Guys & Dolls' on a Friday night, about 80% full in this 300 seat theatre in the round - no bad seats. The choreography was well staged to give every seat a fair view! Talent better than your average community theatre!
