“Always such great entertainment.”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

We have made "A Christmas Carol" a family annual traditon at Christmas. We like the family package - prices are high but are well worth it for families that enjoy good entertainment. The theatres are a nice size - we are never worried about what seats we get, but the middle of the theatre is better. The chairs and theatres over all are clean. You can take bottled water in, not pop. There is a Second Cup coffee place inside the main foyer. There are lots of good options for parking, either in parkades or outside, and the employees that work there must really love their jobs, because they are always so helpful.

“A Gem in Downtown Edmonton”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We were season's ticket holders for 25 years and have only quit because we moved out of Edmonton. This theatre consistently puts on absolute winners in theatre productions. In 25 years, we probably only walked out on 5 performances. Miss it very much!

I was married here... Great theatre, clean, dining in the building and a relaxing p,ace with indoor gardens. A family tradition is to see the Christmas carol. Lovely place.

“Not a bad seat in the house.”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Have been to a "Christmas Carol" 3 times. I really enjoyed the performance, but I think previous years were better than this year.....they changed the play and there was less singing. The costumes and actors are really good....can't go wrong with this play. Also went to a seminar at the Citadel, and there is not a bad seat in the house. The only problem with the Citadel is getting there....parking can be a pain.
