In the heart of Downtown, The Schuster presents a beautiful theater experience. Shows vary throughout the year, from symphonies to pop concerts to children's programming. Seating is comfortable, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Citlities is a nice on-site dining option.

Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and choral rendition by 17 Dayton area American-African church choirs. Many "classic" hymns as well as other all-time favorites from American-African church were offered.

We have been to the Schuster Center a few times and always come away wanting to return. There is just nothing not to love about it. Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is outstanding and a nationally recognized organization that brings top level arts performances to the Dayton area. The Center itself is breathtaking and everyone involved, whether staff of volunteer, go... More

Beautiful facility, not a bad seat in the house. My husband and I attended for a concert recently and sat in the balcony or. The far left facing the stage. Fun times. Drinks and snacks are expensive, and the top balcony isn't good for those with a fear of heights

If you're local, you know the place. If you're a visitor, it's a treat. This performing arts center is beautiful. The "worst" seats in the house are high but nice, unobstructed, and usually have empty seats to move to. The better seats can be had reasonably, and are worth it. The arts you get here are equivalent to a major,... More

You would think you were in a theatre in a major city. Dayton is so fortunate to have such a first rate, beautiful venue in the heart of our city for live Broadway touring productions. I just saw Jersey boys and the Lion King. The large, modern theatre provided exceptional space for the large production of the Lion King. There... More
