It's a small intimate theater with comfortable seating and great sight lines. The actors are mostly amateurs but the leads in many cases are equity members. They accomplish a great deal on the small stage. The sets are imaginative and versatile and work well in the limited space. I've seen some very god shows there.

Saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour coat this week at Palm Canyon Theatre. The purchase of tickets was amazingly easy and stress free, unlike McCallum purchases which was tedious. The theatre is well situated at the top of Palm Springs, but parking is either on the street or in the small lot at the back. The show was professional from... More

This is definitely not professional theatre. Very poor value for price and was pretty well bad from the get go. Overall direction is lacking and sound system pathetic. Some high school productions better and certainly any university theatre way better than this. LotS of other quality activities in PS so don't waste time or money on this. We will not... More

We attended The Music Man, what a wonderful production by the actors and staff. The theatre is located in Palm Springs and is very intimate. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Lots of free parking behind the building. There are refreshments for sale before and at intermission. It is a great evening out activity.

The theatre brings in talented people to perform and some are better than others but they are all earnestly trying hard and I give them credit for that. The theatre is small and I love the intimate aspect of that. What kills this productions here are the acoustics and horrible sound system they use. Because of the size, all music... More
