The Gallo Center is amazing and I always enjoy every show. As a contributing member I am always treated so special and they have appreciation receptions that are number one. So glad we have the Arts in Modesto!

We attend performances several times a year - Have always enjoyed it. The facility is awesome - not a bad seat in either theater. Sometimes we take our grandchildren- or friends. I took my elementary school children (I'm a teacher) two or three times during the school year. What a blessing to have such a high quality facility to draw... More

We have been attending a wide variety of productions for years. The center provides something for everyone - outstanding symphony, guest musicians, rock, country, comedy, dance, educational/entertainment for kids. I would venture to say that if the genre can appear on stage, the Gallo will have it sometime during the year. Our last show was Louis Black comedy. The main... More

State of the art theater. Excellent lighting, sound, acoustics, and seating. I have seen plays, standup comedians, concerts, and guest speakers - always a great time. Top level accommodations. Artists who have played at the Gallo have commented how wonderful the theater is.

I have been here many times. Their mixture of music and other entertainment is the best. There is not a bad seat in the house. It is always a pleasure to be going there. There are too many venue's to mention. But I have never had a bad experience.

This 1600-seat performing arts center in downtown Modesto debuted in 2007. It has become the home of the Modesto Symphony Orchestra, Townsend Opera Players, Central West Ballet. It has hosted Broadway-type musicals (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), comedians (George Lopez), many musicians (Kris Kristofferson, Chicago, Creedence Clearwater). I am a subscriber. Parking is easily available at several garages close... More

We recently attended performances of In the Mood and Masters of Soul. The sound is too loud. It is harmful to our hearing. We are members of MCCA and have been since it was the first resident company at Gallo. We have told friends and family of the sophiscated sound at GCA. No need to turn up the volumne to... More
