Norris Theater is a wonderful theater and a huge asset to the community. I have experienced dozens productions and the venue is top notch. Sound quality, view of the stage from all seats, all things that make a difference in any type of production are all quite good. We've seen everything from children's performances to Linkin Park and everything in... More

The scenery and costumes were amazing and the entire production was of high quality. The staff were welcoming and professional. We enjoyed talking to the... More

Close to our heart: Our girls performed there twice, once in a ballet/tap dance performance at age 4 and also with the elementary school music performance in 4th grade. So far our personal attachment. But there is more: One of the highlights: The Tokens ("The Lion sleeps tonight"), a legend! Traditionally, Uta Graf's ballett school presents "The Nutcracker", great talents,... More

Year after year, the Norris Theater provides the South Bay with a broad range of performances of professional quality in all the Performing Arts. Given the location and the relatively small number of seats, it cannot compete for 'high budget' productions that play 'uptown' (Music Center, Pantages, Wadsworth, etc.), but they constantly offer what is possible to the residents of...

My husband and I travel from Santa Barbara for theatre at the Norris Center for the Performing Arts. "Every" theatre production that we have attended has been top quality and that is what keeps us coming back. (Of course we do visit with the kid when we come to town.) Last Saturdays concert On The Border, the Ultimate Eagle Tribute... More

One of the best performances we have seen anywhere...all performers were outstanding but the leads were truly exceptional. We laughed, we smiled and truly enjoyed. We would recommend this theater. I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. What a great show!!!

with onstage introductions to a local real estate agent and other commercials...this is definately NOT a "center for the performing arts" as the orange county center for the performing arts IS...for instance! we saw "guys & dolls" and there were 3 talented cast members...adelaide, nathan & a chorus boy. the rest were pretty "high school". not worth the freeway traffic...
