Happy to have this venue nearby to be able to see live shows. It is old, but worth going and supporting for our community. The Nutcracker is made up of local children and I see it every year.

Yes....I waited in a pretty long line before the show. I suggest getting seated then going right before the show starts or during the warm up band

the crowd absolutely impacts all aspects of the venue from the vibe, the bathrooms..all of it. It is such a small venue, it is impossible. I am sure the bathrooms will be fine.
