To VSC management: Ask patrons to “Turn off their cell phones” not silence them. During the performance on December 21, two different interruptions of cell phones going off and multiple people checking their phones during the performance. It was worse than a movie theater.

A fun night for us all! The Wells is a beautiful building and parking is so easy (and inexpensive!). The Company did a great job with A Christmas Carol - acting and singing all above expectations. This really is a piece of local culture. Not...More

This was my second time seeing The Christmas Carol in many years. The props, actors, and the songs were fantastic. It seemed the play was cut short not only time wise but also the conversion on Scrooge. I hoped Tiny Tim would have had more...More

The Christmas Carol version was much different from previous years. The actors were very professional and lovely period costumes. However, I am not a fan of changing versions of a classic, so to me, I did not care for it.

Not at all! I love sitting up close in this theater. I find being close to the stage makes the experience all that much more enjoyable.
