We were greatly surprised when our seats, which we assumed would be a distance away, was so close. But while walking aroud, it seems there would be no bad seat. It was... More

Took my daughter to a concert here. The theatre, though outdoors, was very nice with great sound. Loved that there were adequate restrooms.

So a couple of years ago Starlight Theatre Director, began searching out even more popular & better Broadway shows! The past few summers have been some of the best. We have been season ticket holders several times. No regrets. It's a great date night, night out with friends or family, I use it as a night out with my teen!

We saw a show at the indoor theatre and it was very nice. Inside the stage was very close an intimate feeling. The valet parking was a great bonus.

The theater and the campus is very clean. Plenty of food choices although the food is Just okay, nothing great and mostly over priced. Parking just sucks, period. You have to walk through and park in a field. I fell in a shallow hole in the field but luckily was not hurt. The shows where good but I would recommend... More

This venue really took me by surprise due to how beautiful it is. The architecture that surrounds the stage is absolutely gorgeous and all the brickwork is amazing. This is definitely the most unique venue I have ever visited.

I've seen many, many shows here and I've loved every one. Going to another this Friday. My parents have season tickets to their Broadway Series and I've seen concerts and all kinds of things. Downsides are they don't often cancel shows due to rain, so bring an umbrella. And my parents have season tickets but can't get any closer to... More
