Great place for family shows or an adult night out. The Theatre is great. Classes are held for all ages in a variety of areas and fill up quickly so register early!

Weddings for a reasonable price, and home of the TCTV awards, where I was producer of the year 4x in a row and producer of 216 cable ACCESS shows. Nice locale, great parking, near the Torrance Library, and Japanese Garden.
