Small but terrific theatre in Surrey offering all the amenities of a large downtown theatre. Loads of free parking, easy access, terrific sightlines (all seats are very close to the stage) and wonderful acoustics!

Great theatre for Surrey. We enjoy everything about the centre. Parking is good and costs are affordable. Staff very good.

Newer theater designed as part of a school complex, good parking, seating and a variety of shows.

A group of friends went to the Traditional VSO Christmas concert. It is a fun family event with good music and Christopher Gaze tells good stories.
The theatre is quite large and comfortable. Sight lines are good. There is no central aisle so it can be a long trek to get to your central seats. Elderly patrons should be aware of this. It is located in a high school. Parking is plentiful.
It is really nowhere near other theatre-going amenities (coffee shops, pre or post theatre dining). The foyer is a bit cold and un-inviting during intermission in the program. More foyer seating and some nicer foyer ambiance would be nice but pretty difficult to provide in a school setting.
The performances are on a venue rental basis and so the theatrical setting is minimal. Probably best for recitals and musical performances than drama. Despite ambiance draw backs, it is nice to have this option in the suburbs.
