Went to see the production of Beauty and the Beast this past weekend. I was very impressed with the quality of the theater. What struck me immediately is how clean and updated everything was, from the carpet to the seats. Facilities were nice. Technical aspects of the show (lighting, sound, etc) were spot on. A very good experience for the... More

The addition of the Saints and Sinner's Lounge and being able to enjoy a cold beverage while watching a wide variety of both adult and family entertainment is great. Not a bad seat in the house. The price of tickets are very reasonable too.

The center has so many opportunities available. You can catch a performance, audition for a performance, take a class or just visit their exhibits. Wonderful to have this in our community.

Great for a rainy day with young children, the older ones may get a bit bored but it's not expensive and fun!

You walk in and there is a mastodon in the front entrance. Science information for all ages. The little kids like this museum for reasons the older ones don't care about. There are always interesting exhibitions presented here.

I love this place. During my visit recently to Midland, I had the opportunity to attend events twice. The first was a Friday night show featuring Flip Fabrique, a French juggling/acrobatic troupe that put on a whale of a performance which delighted my 17 and 15 year old kids. Not too pricey for tickets, and we had decent seats in... More
