Beautiful Theatre, Great Sound Quality, Fun Evening
Nov 2019
We attended a rock concert (The BoDeans) at the Sheldon Theatre. We were in the very last row of the lower level and still felt close to the stage with a good view of the band and excellent sound. We would definitely attend other shows here.

Beautifully Restored Old Theater.
Nov 2019
We went here to see Bodeans perform. It was a great concert in a very intimate setting. The theater is beautifully restored. The seats are very comfortable and the theater is small enough for the performance to be very intimate.

Stunning Venue - Very Impressive Local Theatre Company
Jul 2019 • Couples
Gorgeous historic theatre in the heart of downtown Red Wing. We took in a performance of "Into the Woods" by the local theater company, Phoenix Community Theatre. We were blown away by the caliber of talent and the production values - it was every bit as good as shows you see at the State or Orpheum Theatres in Minneapolis - would definitely recommend.

So many wonderful events in this beautiful and historic restored 1904 theatre. A wide variety of offerings, most recently attended sold out Cirque Mechanics performance. Amazing, and kept audience of young and old waiting for more. Love this place!

The restoration of this historic theater is very well done. We went for the "Remembering Bobby Vee" concert, and the sound was very good.

We went here for the first time ever. And i guess we got to see like the second show since the fully remodeled. this place is incredible. The structure and decor are simply just amazing. wish we would have gotten a chance to take the tour, maybe next time, but this place is such a cool place. loved the show we got to see. hope to make it back there for another show. this is definetly a place to stop at if you are staying the night in Red Wing.

Beautifully renovated city-owned theatre
Oct 2018 • Couples
I attend many events at this theatre because I live nearby. Obviously my rating will vary by performance but most seats offer a good view of the stage. The theatre offers wine, beer, water and soda and allows you to enjoy them during performances. Take advantage of the coat room downstairs. The seats are older so they are narrow and a coat will be cumbersome in your seat.

A great place to see a show!
Apr 2018 • Couples
We saw the Liverpool Legends Beatles tribute band on our first trip to the Sheldon. The theatre is ornate, nicely restored and has comfortable seating. We were in row F just five rows away from the stage and could see very well. We highly recommend the band as well and plan to attend at least one event at the Sheldon next year. We want to try out the balcony seating.
