I have been to many events at this beautiful theater, most recently, The Lion King. Recently renovated, the theater itself is a work of art. Mosaics cover the floors, walls and ceilings. This is not a large theater, so keep that in mind when choosing...More

We have traveled for a couple of shows to this theater, and it is a beautiful, small venue. I wish we lived closer so we could attend more shows there.

Sadly, it's not open as a venue to view. Take a look the next time there's something there you might want to see! (I just checked the website to make sure there are no special days when one can simply visit.)
