Small venue is perfect for plays and concerts. The sound quality for the concert was very good. The floor is NOT raised so you will have "heads" in your way if you are short. Also, the row of chairs on the floor are bolted together in rows, but the rows were not evenly spaced. Some rows had lots of legroom... More

I recently saw Menopause the Musical there. The Township has undergone massive renovations. However, no one thought of the small details like seat numbers. As the frustrated staff said over and over again, start here and count down. Our seat said 12 but the chair said 8 and so did the chair next to it. You can understand patron concerns!... More

We just came from a Moody Blues concert and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and layout of the auditorium. It was easy to see the stage from our balcony seats, and the acoustics were good (but not worth bragging about). Refreshments were readily available, although lines were slow. Popcorn and beer were very common. The bathrooms were immaculate. Elevators... More

My only complaint was that it was very hot inside. A coat check would have been great. The sound inside the theatre is very good though.

Anthony Hamilton in concert. Every seat in the house is a good seat. We sat stage right in the second level. Legroom is limited due to row in front of us. Sound was great. Great Venue.

We visited the Township for a Anthony Hamilton concert in October. Overall, the concert was awesome as we could hear and see everything as it was a very intimate auditorium. It is an older building with not many renovations. Come early as parking is VERY limited.

We visited the Township for this year's Nutcracker. The remodel was very well done, The building is beautiful inside and out. The level orchestra seats floor gives them flexibility for events (the seats can be removed) but stage visibility is not the best. My complaint is the usher staff. They admitted a large number of late arrivals even up to... More
