We are truly lucky to have such a nice amphitheater in our town. It is clean, modern and with great acoustics. The parking is free and easy to get to. I think it is nicer than the convention center

The Arts Center is a very modern and attractive performing arts venue at Northwest Florida State College. Modern stage with all sorts of special features for plays, etc. Orchestra pit. Used for symphony performances, broadway musicals, college theater productions. Pretty impressive for a small town.

The Arts Center Theater is a superior facility built to accommodate traveling Broadway shows and other large presentations as well as local college theater productions. Elegant surroundings, great acoustics with not a bad seat in the house.

We have seen the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra several times. They are excellent. This month we went to see "Sinatra-The Ultimate Tribute Concert" If you ever get to see Brian Duprey portray Frank Sinatra you will not be disappointed.

Niceville, as many know is a small town, but the arts center is impressive with excellent acoustics and style that one would see in a major city. Parking is a breeze. It is simply very upscale for a town which would normally not have such...More
