This is a great annual event put on by the Paradise. I've found pieces in pristine condition that can be used for gifts and pieces by some of the great artists in the area like Dee Teller. And the prices are very affordable.

The performances and the entertainment are as good you will find in southern Minnesota. This is an outstanding organization for theater. The only reason I don't rate it with a 5 Star rating is the price. I think they are over priced, very good, but over priced.

Attended opening night of the Odd Couple. As a fan of the Odd Couple I was looking forward to the humor. Staff were friendly as always. What first took me by surprise was the lack of attendance on a Friday night. I felt I must've had high expectations for this show because before intermission I was ready to leave. The... More

I have been here numerous times and love the atmosphere. My most memorable event was a comedy show my husband and I hosted for our coed party before we renewed our vows and it was a blast! They have great concessions, a fantastic variety in their gift shop and a large variety of awesome entertainment.

This hidden gem in the heart of downtown Faribault seems to have something for everyone. We have attended plays, comedian performances, musical concerts. There are things to see (sculpture, paintings, etc.), and stuff to buy. Attend a class, if you wish!

This is a truly great multipurpose arts facility. There are multiple art galleries that are open to the public for free, and include both galleries of work by local youth as well as some better known artists. Art education is also offered regularly with classes that range from fun things to make with duct tape up to higher level pottery,... More

This old movie theater has been renovated into a small, intimate theater and it was fun to attend a show there due to the small size- every seat is a good seat! The seats however, are hard (not cushioned) and quite uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time.

The play was very well done and the venue is very nice. It is nice to be able to grab a glass of wine while you watch the play.

They really put on some great little plays, often times with great refreshments while you are waiting. Local artists display their works and sometimes we even have a famous name come to town.
