Went to see Phantom of the Opera here, and I couldn't have picked a better venue. It looks like an old time theater, with red and yellow and just super pretty. Although it's kinda claustrophobic with how many people are mushed together.

What an AMAZING theatre!! Such an easy pick up of tickets at will call! The theatre is absolutely stunning! Pictures don't do it justice! The performance was so enjoyable for my two 9 Year olds I had with me. We will definitely be back!

It is always a treat to see a performance here. Slightly smaller place so it feels more intimate. Nice acoustics. Easy parking at the statehouse.

I am not sure of seating specifics. The layout of the theater is very good. We usually sit in the first section of the balcony and view is excellent.
