First visit to this locatkon was to see Carpenters Christmas. The building was awesome. Reminds me of Fox Theater in Atlanta. More renovations planned in 2018. Easy parking. Comfortable seats.

Saw the Nutcracker here. The theater is beautiful and acoustics were good. A few stairs to the balcony, so avoid that if stairs are a problem. Parking a bit difficult, but overall a great venue.

The theater is absolutely beautiful! I have seen so many wonderful shows here and I am so excited that the seating is currently being redone because it was very tight. Hopefully there will now be some more leg room.

Drove down to spend a night in Macon to see a concert here. What a great atmosphere! The only strange thing is the drinking rule but it certainly wasn't a problem...just strange. In all, we loved the place.

Suggest you call the box office (478-301-5470). I know they conduct group tours. They can tell you if there is any possibility for you on that date.
