  • Beautiful venue for performing artists. Picturesque grounds, lots of free parking, comfortable seating with a clear view of the stage from every seat, spacious lobby for the audience to move about, a wine bar - a nearly perfect theatrical theater. However, it does not have WiFi for public access (ideally free) which is needed for those events which only provide their program online. 4.5 stars.
  • Beautiful theatre! Parking is ample and the entertainment choices are great. I had never been there before my son's school music concert. Now, that I now, I will keep my eye out for entertainment that is appealing to me.
  • Great acoustics, good seating and stage views from all points. Easy parking. Good bathrooms. First Wednesdays are a bonus. They do a variety of performances. Worth checking out the website to see who will be there. Attract big and small acts.
  • The free programs are just excellent. Its a great way for parents to get their middle school and teen kids out of the house and exposed to some different types of music and art. Or for anyone really.
  • Beautiful venue for dance performances. Plenty of parking and easy to find. The only negative is that there are no vending machines or food/drink sources on site for feeding hungry or thirsty little performers. You have to leave the "campus-site" to purchase these. When dancers are at competition for 6-7-8+ hours this is hard so pack snacks and drinks!!! (For consumption in the dressing area or just outside the theatre.)
