Have been fans of ABBA for a long time. Heard about the ABBA event on a previous visit to MMT. The three female vocalists were excellent. We were sitting in the back of the auditorium and could hear the music clearly. Their enthusiasm, talent along with the musicians supporting them were a pleasure to hear! An excellent show.

I love the size of this theater and have enjoyed all the shows here. The new partnership with Hollins theater program has expanded the offerings to shows that are often thought provoking while still offering the mainstream shows that are beloved by most audiences. I really enjoy the steep seat arrangement. It feels like several theaters we have visited in... More

We saw the closing performance of 42nd Street ... It was wonderful! The theater itself is small, and all of the seats seemed good for viewing. This production was as good as any of the Broadway shows I've seen in NYC. I hear from others that all of the shows are great.

I bought a $100.00 gift certificate for a Christmas present, and after making the purchase was informed the 'gift certificate' would need to be printed at home. I asked, do you not provide and actual gift certificate to give as the present? The answer was no, and I was told "this is the cheap way to do it." Furthermore, after... More

My husband and I have been going to productions at Mill Mountain since it reopened a few years ago. There truly is not a bad seat in the house and the seats are comfortable. The amount of talent on the stage is unbelievable! The theater is located in the heart of Roanoke-lots of other things to see and do while... More

I have been to musicals (my favorite!), drama, , impromptu performances, and loved my experience every time!! I recently seen "Hairspray", "To Kill... More

Attended opening night of "Hairspray" and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is not a bad seat in the house at Mill Mountain Theatre. The people there are so pleasant and very proud of the Theatre. Roanoke is quite lucky to have such fabulous plays available.

We have recently enjoyed a couple of shows in this comfortable and convenient theater. Each time we found ourselves in seats with an excellent view and we suspect, given the layout, that virtually all customers will have excellent views as well. The prices we paid for tickets have been quite reasonable as well, including one out-of-town production that was staged... More

Recently visited Mill Mountain Theatre to see "To Kill a Mockingbird". It was a wonderful presentation. I have never been disappointed in this theatre house. If you are in the Roanoke area you should check out what is playing!
