We really enjoyed the Glory and Majesty of Christmas show. Done very well. They are very talented people. Really topped off the season. Had tickets that included the buffet afterwards. The food was so good. Just like home cooking with stuffing and all the trimmings....More

This is a good venue for viewing top quality entertainment. Seating was extremely cramped, though. There was not enough leg room.

The bands that perform here are "older" but we love going there. Intimate setting with comfortable chairs, great sound and not a bad seat in the place. Great value!

The performers spoke clearly, sang beautifully, and acted professionally. Next time I will plan to order tickets sooner in order to be more a part of the center stage audience rather than off to the side. Your theater is comfortable, a nice place to celebrate...More
