Very convenient location although parking is limited. This is a nice venue for small. intimate shows. It is a relatively small auditorium, so seats are in close proximity to the stage. Shows are reasonably priced.

Every seat has a good view of the stage. There are no blind spots in the corners. Abundant and clean restrooms. Adjacent parking lot. Easy access. A very pleasant staff completed the package.

I have been here several times. It is an intimate setting that allows you get close to the performers. Unfortunately we had a drunk in the audience last night. At first a mature woman asked the man to be quiet. Over the course of the...More
