We love going to shows at the Bradley. It's a local theater with great talent. There is not a bad seat in the house and the tickets are always very reasonably priced. Highly recommended

Have gone to several shows at the Bradley! The shows are awesome and the staff is super helpful and friendly. The ticket prices are very reasonable and it makes for a fun family night without the expense.

The shows are always fun, with local talent and a few regional stars. It is a cozy old movie house, maybe 150 seats.
