Wonderful place to go for entertainment in Walnut Creek! Saw the Abba show tonight and it was great! I recommend this venue for any show. Plenty of dinning around

Visited the Center for several children's productions that were all well done. Also attended adult presentations that were enjoyable but the quality was dependent upon the particular cast.

Terrific place to view a variety of entertainment. Art gallery on premises. Big parking lot attached. Beautiful venue. We attend a Speaker Series here. Good acoustics. Very near good restaurants, so you can park once and walk.

We come here annually for the Moonie and Broon Show, which is hysterically funny. It is in one of the smaller theaters; seating is a trifle scrunched. We haven’t been here for any other plays,etc., for years. The M&B group tends to be on the...More
