Really nice place to see a show or music concert. All seats have great views of the stage. Not so big that you have a hard time seeing or hearing. The sound quality is really good. Hands down, the best venue in Dayton to see a show.

A beautiful theater with great accoustics. Do be aware, though, that if have an issue with heights you will likely want to stay in orchestra or mezzanine. There are several levels of balcony and they are very high up!

I came here with my daughter-in-law and extended family members to see the live performance of Wicked. It is an extremely beautiful and clean theater. The performance was AMAZING and I will definitely return.

In the heart of Downtown, The Schuster presents a beautiful theater experience. Shows vary throughout the year, from symphonies to pop concerts to children's programming. Seating is comfortable, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Citlities is a nice on-site dining option.

Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and choral rendition by 17 Dayton area American-African church choirs. Many "classic" hymns as well as other all-time favorites from American-African church were offered.

We have been to the Schuster Center a few times and always come away wanting to return. There is just nothing not to love about it. Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is outstanding and a nationally recognized organization that brings top level arts performances to the Dayton area. The Center itself is breathtaking and everyone involved, whether staff of volunteer, go... More
