This little local theater is big on entertainment. Located in downtown Walnut Creek, Ca. I have been a patron for many seasons and because of the caliber of shows will continue to be. They have comedys, drama, musicals, childrens productions, lecture series, and other events. There is something for everyone. A friend and I just went to see Baskerville: A... More

The performances have been stellar. I have always been able to get a single ticket when I wanted. I enjoyed the acting and musical events equally.

The Lesher Theater is a comfortable and convenient local theater for the performing arts. We particularly enjoy the Gilbert and Sullivan musicals. In addition to fine theater, there is adequate convenient parking and a host of local restaurants nearby. We are very grateful for their Gilbert and Sullivan series.

This is a multiplex performing arts theater with an art gallery and wine. Pick a play or concert and enjoy. Parking is available next door. I've been a frequent visitor since its opening in the 90's.

We went to see Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. It was excellent, 5 actors/actress played 40 roles! It was fast pace with many different accents, so it was a little hard to follow at times. The stage was wonderfully designed, the acting was superb. It was a very enjoyable play, priced very reasonably. The Lesher Theatre has several theatres,

Large and smaller theatres offer wide opportunities for many theatrical productions in a sophisticated center-city complex, with an in-house art gallery and next-door public parking

I love going to shows here. There is always parking and plenty of restaurants to choose from afterwards. The staff at Lesher is extremely helpful. Every seat is a good seat. The prices are excellent also. Worth every penny.
