Proctors is a great place to see a show. Centrally located in the downtown area. They are replacing all the seating this summer which will make it even better. Quality, broadway shows can be seen here for a reasonable price without traveling to NYC. They...More

A delight to visit. Big theater, small town. I have attended plays and quilt shows there. Both times I found parking right outside. Plus went to dinner at a nearby restaurant.

Wonderful production! Very talented cast. Best local theater around. As good as anything on Broadway. They try and get as many new shows as they can every season. Each season is better than the last.

This is a really pretty theatre. The performance are just as great as the shows in NYC. We really enjoy going here less traffic easy to park. There are also many very good restaurants in the area.

I've seen many productions here: Wicked, Shrek, Lion King, Jersey Boys, Carmen and most recently Les Miserables. I don't know why I've never thought to review Proctors. Perhaps because it's down the street I take it for granted. Our theater competes with any of that...More

Good show. They oversold the premium seats,so I had a NY style confrontation with the person in the reserved seats I paid for. I AM NOT FROM THE RUDEST STATE IN THE NATION. I have learned to be just as rude as them. I have...More

I have been for multiple shows and a graduation at Proctors. I swear there is no such thing as a bad seat here. It's a beautiful theater, some seats seem tighter than others sometimes on the hips, but it's always a great view regardless. Park...More

I don't know. When attending a performing arts program I tend to favor the balcony for visual and acoustical reasons. I'd like to hear about the experiences of others who had orchestra seats during a musical production.
