I have seen ballet, comedy, musical performance and many other types of live performance at this venue. I has been nicely restored to meet the varied needs of the community and is a stellar, warm and inviting place with a sense of history that sets it apart. One small issue will likely never change, the lobby at intermission is too... More

We caught a 1940's Big Band musical review by the String of Pearls band and In The Mood singers/dancers. Very enjoyable especially in the "old" venue.

Was there for the Joan Baez concert and the place was packed. I come here several times each year. Make sure you go around in the lobby and upstairs and read the plaques and look at the pictures about the glory days of the building

Beautifully restored theater with lots of architectural details. It's just the right size for a solo concert or a small play.

The New Zealand Ukulele Orchestra happened to be playing the night we were in town, and for $20/ticket we said why not? The group was very entertaining and the theater's a gem. Looked like a great lineup of shows and speakers.

This is a really neat place. It's a step back in time and a real treat to see such a Beautiful old theater. The architecture inside is amazing and something you can only see from the past. We had a really good time.

we went to hear Joan Baez and were so pleasantly surprised that Frederick had such a large auditorium with good acoustics and great views from everywhere.

I loved the looked of this theater. I saw 1964 The Tribute last night, and I thought they were amazing. The sound quality in the theater was outstanding. We were in the balcony, and we could see everything. The service folks were very nice, and I am looking forward to going back again next year.

We were pleasantly surprised by the decor, size and the acoustics when we saw Spyrogyra in concert. The theater offers a variety of arts and performances but little for our particular tastes. When a good group comes, we wouldn't hesitate to go back. The tickets are easy to get on line and very reasonably priced. As word of mouth spreads,... More
