“Converted Church into small theater”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Up graded seating has improved the comfort of most patrons. Balcony seating is still further away from stage than should be.

I've seen musical concerts, comedy performances and dramatic productions. All were well staged and attended. Pricing is fair I believe.

It's a small town theater and does attract its share of "former" big names in the entertainment world. But it's local and easier to get to than San Francisco.

“Great place to see an event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We came to the center for the Kathy Griffin show. The show outstanding and funny. The parking was free and easy to access. The bar had beer and wine plus some snacks. The men's bathroom was always crowded with long lines. The seats were comfortable and every seat in the place had good views of the stage.

We will be back to see other events for sure! Thanks!

We truly enjoyed this Center because the theater has great views of the stage from any seat in the house. Great sound system and lighting. We found the venue to be very comfortable and offers great entertainment.

“Nice venue for the arts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This center will soon be undergoing a million dollar face lift. I thought it was pretty good to begin with! Love the talent they bring here. Easy access to bathrooms, which are plenty.

This Center for the Arts brings so much to our county:
from shows for children, to comedy for adults, to music for all tastes, to international dance, to community art shows.... we are all enlivened by the breadth of display and performances offered here.
