“Great place to see an event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Very small, no bad seats, yet they often get very big named artists here. I have family that will come up here to see the same artist that was just playing in SF right by their home. But they make the hour drive here as it is a very small venue, and feels much more personal.

All seats on the main floor have great views of the stage and feel close. Facility is undergoing renovations for the summer, but reopens in the Fall.

“Great Venue to see a show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Go to their website and find an event you want to see. You will enjoy the theatre and the setting it is in. The Center offers a wide variety of entertainment, including family shows.

“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.
