This was my first time visiting this theatre although I have worked down the street from the venue and only live about 20 minutes away. Parking was horrible due to construction in the area, but once inside the theatre the staff was welcoming and helpful....More

We always enjoy the 3 or more shows we see here every year! Close to Broadway quality! The Bodyguard was extremely well done!

Upon entering and taking our seats, my husband remarked "wow- I had no idea there was basically a Broadway Theater right here." It's a well-run venue, has a dynamic and interesting set of shows (we've been going for 2 seasons now, not to everything), and...More

The venue is very nice, however, recently the shows have not been to my taste. This can just be an anomaly with me, but even with the new season being advertised, there is nothing that appeals to me in the works.

I greatly underestimated this theater! I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I was with both the adult and child actors in this performance. I never thought anyone could hold a torch to the beloved Julia Andrews in this role...boy, was I wrong! She...More

There is no dress code. Feel free to wear whatever you want. Some people wear jeans and sneakers, others a little dressier. Few people wear suits and fancy dresses.

People tend to go out to eat before so they dress in more business casual. Occasionally you'll find someone in jeans,but the crowd is older and a little more sophisticated so business casual is best
