This is a somewhat out of the way theater but well worth a visit. There are performances every Friday and Saturday night from 7:30 till 8:30pm. Check the website for their program. I've seen classical dance, large shadow puppet theater & the small shadow puppets. The performers are graduates of the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, and they're first rate. Admission is only US$5. The building is basically open on 3 sides but it has a good roof so rain is no problem at all. (There was the odd animal wandering through.)
Don't confuse this theater with the Sovanna Shopping Mall, which is in a completely different location.

has a lucky supermarket, a few floors of clothes and fast food restaurants, lifts, escalators and aircon. unlike city mall, which is the town's white elephant, sovanna is usually busy, especially on theweekend, and a favourite with expats of all stripes. don't expect ion orchard, but ok for an hour or two retail therapy.
