The old Nevada Theater, in downtown Nevada City (Broad Street) is a beautiful, Victorian, elegant theater, like nothing else I've seen. Don't let the old surroundings fool you, though, the stage is totally modern. Great lighting, trap doors, huge stage, and a great sound system...More

We live locally. This is a historic theater that has been in operation since the mid 1800's, but it has been restored. The seating is quite comfortable, with the space between rows larger than found in most Broadway theaters. Several theater groups perform here, and...More
