The renovations made a few years ago make this one of the best venues for really comfortable seating in the area. There is a lot of space in each row to walk in front of the people already seated without a problem at all. The acoustics are excellent. The balcony seating is very good. There is a sizable area to... More

Nice smaller surroundings which was good for school outings. Good place for dramatic performances. Enjoyed acts I saw there.

I have attended several events here and it has always met our needs. There was plenty of parking for what we were there for and places to eat nearby. It is not the newest facility but will meet your needs or they will work with you.

My wife and I have enjoyed several concerts in this auditorium. I can assure you that there is not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics are top notch. Seats are comfortable, with plenty of leg room and easy ingress/egress. We're always looking forward to the next evening of 1st class music or entertainment, offered by The Heymann and PASA.

The auditorium was redone several years ago and it now has continental style seating (no aisles down the middle, you enter through the sides). When they made this change they installed very comfortable seats and also increased the leg room in the orchestra section of the venue. The sound quality throughout the building is excellent. While I will keep secret... More
