While this venue has 50+ years of my own personal memories it continues to grow in style, popularity, and support. It has everything needed by a performer, producer, and audience. It seems like every city had an old theatre that has tried to be saved....More

The show was fantastic and the performers and orchestra were top notch! What an opportunity for these kids! They put their heart and soul into the performance and you could see it in their faces.

I don't know. When attending a performing arts program I tend to favor the balcony for visual and acoustical reasons. I'd like to hear about the experiences of others who had orchestra seats during a musical production.
