We have been to quite a few shows at proctors and we always have a good experience. The only tricky thing is finding a good parking spot, oftentimes you have to pay extra to park. The last show we were at was pretty empty and...More

We had the chance to see “the King and I” and totally loved it. Wonderful costumes, stage sets, orchestra and cast. Loved the voices as well as the story. Packed theater but helpful volunteers/ushers.

This year my husband bought a subscription for the 2917-2018 season. This was a great purchase. Proctor's is a great place to see a Broadway show. I have seen many great shows here and have enjoyed them all. Great sound quality and a beautiful theatre.

Been here countless times and it’s a gem of a theatre. New York Broadway productions at half the price. I would suggest it should be on everyone’s bucket list.

I have been to Proctors many times over the years and it never fails to impress me. The old style charm of the decor is great. The volunteer staff is always super helpful and there is not a bad seat in the theater. Most recently...More

Beautiful old theater, seating a bit small depending on location can mean limited leg room. Can be a wait for ladies room during intermission with limited bathroom facilities in the theater.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the movie Star Trek II. Film very grainy and dark. Sound was no better than a Hi-Fi set back in the 50's. On the other hand the question and answer session with William Shatner was great. Probably...More

I started going to Proctors in the early 1970's, as a teenager, to see movies. After having been out of State for 37 years, I recently returned and saw a musical at Proctors in February, 2018, and we just loved the theater. It has not...More

Was in the states on a business trip staying close by. We decided to go see Les Mis. The theatre has a great atmosphere, very old fashioned from the architecture to the confectionery with a classy vintage style to it. The show was excellent, amazing...More

I don't know. When attending a performing arts program I tend to favor the balcony for visual and acoustical reasons. I'd like to hear about the experiences of others who had orchestra seats during a musical production.
