My husband and I went to the Badgett Theater for the first time. We saw the 50’s show and thoroughly enjoyed it. We look forward to going to more shows.

We went to the Christmas show and it was really very professional. The singers were excellent and the show very entertaining. Across the road is Patti's and wonderful lights for the Christmas season. Not a crowded area or traffic areas and easy to park.

Enjoyed the holiday program. Only improvement would be more concession staff. The intermission break truly was overwhelming to the two trying to keep up. But they managed it very well.
