“What a terrific theatre!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This beautiful treasure in the desert is so nice. The staff are mostly older folks, but so friendly and inviting. What a great venue! We were on the second deck and still had a terrific view because every seat is so close to the stage.

“Wonderful space”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Surprisingly intimate theater -- modern, but made even more likeable because it's a Broadway-sized theater.

Usually has a great season of concerts, dance, theater, comedy, and other events. Acoustics are usually good throughout the theater although it can vary I think when a road show is working w/their own sound person.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Saw Kenny Rogers and Steve Tyrell, both great shows. Amazing back up bands. Great seats but prices are a bit high.

“Wonderful Entertainment”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We go at least several times a year. Great entertainment. Excellent seating at resonable prices if you go through the McCallum ticket office online. It's tricky when you Bing or Google it as it's easy to accidently pick a site that jacks up the tickets. Be careful not to get taken.

“Fantastic theater experience”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

My daughter and I attended the Mavericks show at the McCallum Theater. I thought that it was an amazingly luxurious venue. A well-designed and large parking lot meant that getting in and out was easy. Ushers were polite and pleasant, and ever-ready to deal with a question or a problem. The acoustics were fantastic, and the seating was great. Plenty of room to stretch out, or allow people in and out of the row without getting your feet trampled.

It was definitely worth the drive from Orange County, and I'd do it again for the right act.
