The theatre is a good size, not a bad seat in the house. It has movies, live entertainment and plays, at least while we were there. The Neil Diamond Experience entertains every Wednesday evening throughout most of this year. It's more than a Tribute show really, but one of the best ones we've ever attended. You are totally immersed, kind... More

Welk theatre is a gem, intimate with only about 11 rows, great sound and lighting And music is live. The cast were just excellent over the years we have been to a number of shows all of superior quality. Welk guests get 10% off. If you like theatre Not to be missed if you are in the area.

We have been to Welk Resort in Escondido 3 times and each time have attended a theater production. This production (My Fair Lady) was by far the best, even though previous ones have been very good. Excellent music, great choreography, and a good set. We have attended several broadway productions, and this is very close in quality.

Saw the show with my with my wife tonight. What an absolutely fabulous performance. The intimate setting and top quality performers made it a fantastic evening. A true gem in North San Diego county. We'll be back for more.

If you have an opportunity to visit this place, I suggest that you take advantage of it. We wee in the upper level villas with a view to the West across the golf course. Lots of activities during the entire day, every day of the week for all family members. Restaurant has a better than average buffet and the theater... More

This show was festive, fun and entertaining. The four actors/singers were so talented as were the musicians. The show was full of music and comedy. The theater is a nice size theater. Refreshments were available. There are several pieces of memorabilia to look at in the theater.

I wasn't sure what to expect and expected a hokey magic show. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to see a complate show of illusions, quick wit and overall great fun, that lasted about two hours. Definitely a bargain for the price of the show.

We were totally enthralled and entertained watching Anthony and his assistants perform their unique magic show. His stories touch your heart and his art of illusion baffles the mind. I personally laughed as hard as I have laughed in years during a particular segment of the show. If you have an opportunity to see him, GO. Taterdogs819
