Thank you so much, John! You are right - season ticket purchased before individual tickets go on sale to the public get the best seats and enjoy unlimited free exchanges. And yes! You can usually get great seats right before the show, too. We hope...More

Thanks for the kind words! We hear you about long lines, though! We make every effort to get everyone through and always wait to start the show until the line has cleared. We hope to see you at the theater again soon!

I came here to watch a show being performed on the stage. It is a nice, clean place. They have a lot of food places to choose from. I like how there are places to go to that are close. Like the park for kids.

Thanks so much! We may be biased, but we think we have the best location in town and we love all our neighborhood restaurants. Hope to see you at the theater again soon!

The variety fits everyone's taste and the performances are top notch. The value is superior and the beverage show special drinks make the experience that much better. We have been members for over 15 years and the shows are a highlight of the year.

Experienced my second performance at PCS. Have enjoyed both thoroughly. Price point is great and there isn't a bad seat in the house. I am really impressed by the quality of the shows I've seen here. You will be too.
