We have enjoyed the evenings we have spent here. We come out saying we need to do that again. The seats below are regular theater seats on the other hand the balcony consists of benches with a thin seat cushion. We have sat in both areas and liked them both. Sound and visibility is good in both sections. I'm happy... More

We have been to the Woodland Opera House many times. In fact we used to have season tickets. It's laudable that Woodland has a community theater group and historic venue. This time we came for A Christmas Story. They did a great job especially the Old Man and narrator/Adult Ralphie. We could hear almost every actor even though we were... More

We attended a showing of silent movies with a pianist playing the piano. Fantastic experience. This place takes you back in time. I plan on attending other productions. Great Experience!

The Woodland Opera House is a special place.... first Opera house in CA, I believe... it's very original and authentic and it's like stepping back into time when you enter... You can just imagine watching performances there 100 years ago. The curators keep it in great condition. The performances are delightful however, if you are looking for serious plays and... More

The play Footloose is performed in an old Woodland Opera House. We watched this modern day play in an old theater with padded seats and carpet on the floor. Love how the city has built a night life around this theater. They have several plays a year performed by young acting students. A good experience for them and the audience... More

We have attended many productions in this beautiful and historic building. Each time we have been amazed at the high caliber performances! This is a small venue and every seat is a GREAT seat!

We visited for several different shows and our kids participated in the dance program for one year. The historic building is incredible. The shows we saw were cute. However we didn't find the staff we dealt with to be organized, personable, or terribly friendly. Too bad.

Everything and I mean every event at the Woodland is excellent - from Children's plays, to dance reviews extravaganzas, to adult singing events - one most recent upcoming is the tribute to Patsy Kline and Johnny Cash - you cannot miss when you purchase a ticket and attend any event at the fabulous Woodland Opera House

The Woodland Opera House was built in the late 1800s. My grandfather sang there in a barbershop quartet in about 1900. It has a major fire in 1905 (?) and was rebuilt. It fell into disrepair and was totally refurbished recently. It a gorgeous, historic venue with a better than new auditorium. Detailed finishing and brass-work. It hosts local musical... More
