“Extraordinary resource in Palm Desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

The McCallum Theatre for the Performing Arts hosts a wide range of very good quality events ranging from musical comedies, musical groups and leading performers. Ticket prices are reasonable. If you are visiting the desert for any period of time this is a great venue to check out.

“Great theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This place is great and the valet parking is the quickest I've ever seen. It would be better if they allowed patrons to take their wine in to the theater.

“first class entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

In a smallish community, the McCallum stands out by having an excellent playbill. It's a beautiful theater with excellent sight lines, no matter where you sit. We've seen superbe dance, top drawer revues and renouned singers and musicians. The prices are very reasonable as well.

“Great Entertainment Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Many outstanding entertainment professionals appear at McCallum during the season (fall to spring). The theater offers everything from classical to pop including singers, solo instrumental artists, dancers and musical theater productions. The venue seats about 1,200 people. There's not a bad seat in the house. Staff are very friendly and helpful

“Desert Cultural Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The McCallum Theatre is a true cultural gem in the desert. Its 25th anniversary season just concluded had something for everyone, as it does every year. The facility is gorgeous, the acoustics superb, the technical staff is among the best, and every seat in the house is excellent. Orchestras, soloists, musicals and staged productions abound, and the roster of performers reads like a dream. Year after year, the McCallum is in the top few theaters in the country in terms of ticket sales -- a tribute to CEO/President Mitch Gershenfeld and his professional staff.
