“Always a blast!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been to many shows at the Maverick Theater and have always had an absolutely delightful time. I'm very lucky to have such an enjoyable theater in my hometown. The performance spaces are relatively small, but what they lack in size is made up for in quality. Whether drama, comedy or musical, the shows are always expertly produced and sets are amazing. I highly recommend the annual productions of Night of the Living Dead (for the Halloween season) and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (for the Christmas season)...sell-outs every year for very good reason. I've brought many friends to productions here over the years and each one has become a fan of the theater. The production team at the Maverick knows how to use their theater space to its best effect while creating shows that impress and entertain. Highly, highly recommended. Can be difficult to find on your first visit, so be sure to look it up on a map before heading there and watch for the fairly small theater sign along the street.

“Small & hard to find”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

My wife and I have enjoyed several shows at this very creative theater. We've always had a fun experience. The last show we enjoyed was "The Sting". The facility can be divided into two smaller venues that were used for this show. There's nothing stuffy about going to their productions. Very creative environment but you might have quite a wait to use the bathrooms..

“Small but Mighty”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This a small local theater which puts on excellent productions with excellent actors. I am always amazed how many talented theater people there are locally in North Orange county, specially Fullerton. Anyhow, I have seen several productions at this theater and will see more. Makes for a nice date night.

“First time but not the last”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

The Maverick Theater performance was impressive, professional, entertaining. I will assume all of its performances show the same quality. The theater is small, audience was enthusiastic, evening was fun and a bit different. Although the theater is a challenge to find, don't give up. Art deco touches and bar give it a somewhat classy atmosphere. Well worth one's time!
