My little great-granddaughters had their recitals at this center and the facility is beautiful and comfortable. Those that are physically challenged for walking, it is a little far from parking lot to the entrance.

Recently saw a jazz band play here and it was a lot of fun. It is a bit tricky if you are challenged to walk as the decline to get to the seats is steep.

Weddings for a reasonable price, and home of the TCTV awards, where I was producer of the year 4x in a row and producer of 216 cable ACCESS shows. Nice locale, great parking, near the Torrance Library, and Japanese Garden.

This is a lovely local theatre offering a good range of productions. I don't think there's a bad seat in the house. Only quibble is that the entry to each row is slanted very strangely and can be difficult, especially for people with mobility issues.
