the Civic strives to put on great shows that draw good attendance. Although some of the actors are recycled a bit too much, there is seldom a disappointing performance. There seems to be some very good talent in Spokane.

Many people have very strong and positive memories of Civic Theater.
Over the last decade there has been a strong decline in quality of the theater.

Civic Theater was created specifically to bring live theater to the people of Spokane.
Sadly, because of the steep increases in the basic price of tickets, more and more people are unable to afford to go to these productions. It is now impossible for a family of modest means to go to Civic Theater.

In an era of increasingly tight funding sources, Less elaborate productions which can be mounted
On a more modest budget should be undertaken.

This is also supposed to be a "Civic Theater" where the entire community has a chance to participate in the productions. There is a disturbing tendency to see the same small core group of individuals in all the key roles. This does not develop new talent.

At this time I cannot recommend Civic Theater. There are other theaters in the area who offer
less elaborate productions for substantially lower ticket prices.

The wife and I have been season and/or donor members for the better part of the past two decades and are always impressed with the quality of the shows. There's a reason that our Spokane Civic Theatre has won numerous national awards. We've been to shows at other theaters with paid actors and always come running back to our Civic. Whether Main Stage or Studio shows, they're simply the best around. We've got some outstanding, local talent.

This is a great place to catch a locally produced play with some very talented actors. It's a little run-down and very old, but the atmosphere is so much fun.

Went to Spokane for a weekend and decided to go see a show here. It was a production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. It was done by their summer teen theater group. It was very well done and the kids did an excellent job. Theater was small and all seats were good. Would go back here to see a show again.
