Staff is rude, not so much the concessions, but the rest, security, ushers,floor, etc. They behave like its the first time they've ever had authority and they're ready and eager for confrontation. I've never had personal problems, but I've witnessed it many times, and last night. But, its been this way for a while. I've seen 3 shows there this... More

The staff was rude and no one seemed to be having a good time. Horrible vibe. I will never attend another show at this venue, no matter how much I like the artist.

My husband and I saw Jason Isbell at the Township Auditorium. It was our first time to see a show there. It is an older venue, but a great place to see a show. We would return to see a show there.

Excellent venue for this concert of two great entertainers. Easily accessible, good parking all around (even on the streets for free), and nice layout. Got to sit on the floor, but looked up at the various levels and there were several. My only criticism is that the seats on the floor were vary narrow. If you have some junk in... More

Small venue is perfect for plays and concerts. The sound quality for the concert was very good. The floor is NOT raised so you will have "heads" in your way if you are short. Also, the row of chairs on the floor are bolted together in rows, but the rows were not evenly spaced. Some rows had lots of legroom... More

I recently saw Menopause the Musical there. The Township has undergone massive renovations. However, no one thought of the small details like seat numbers. As the frustrated staff said over and over again, start here and count down. Our seat said 12 but the chair said 8 and so did the chair next to it. You can understand patron concerns!... More

We just came from a Moody Blues concert and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and layout of the auditorium. It was easy to see the stage from our balcony seats, and the acoustics were good (but not worth bragging about). Refreshments were readily available, although lines were slow. Popcorn and beer were very common. The bathrooms were immaculate. Elevators... More
