Amazing small venue! Intimate comfortable seating with excellent sound and stage visual lines. The staff was kind and helpful. Friendly lot parking that was not only free for our event, Brit Floyd , but a very quick in and out. Excellent all around!!

I was there for a small event that took only about 2 hours. This auditorium is located near a large sports venue nearby and parking may be difficult if they have an event also. Parking was free with my event's tickets, but I ended up parking in a hotel nearby because it was very difficult to find an empty spot. At the venue itself things were better. Drinks weren't too overpriced. Bathrooms were aplenty and clean. Employees were courteous and helpful. Some people from the other venue got confused and went into this one, but they were given proper directions by employees. Seats were a little tight, but nicely padded. So other than parking it was ok.

Great place for concerts. Staff was super awesome and helpful. Very clean restrooms. The concession folks were the best. Thank y'all for sticking with all the Covid challenges.

Anastasia! First visit since the upgraded auditorium. Can't say enough about how nice it was to walk from the parking lot,over the ramp,and into the venue,no going up and down steps anymore! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Restrooms were well marked and clean. The entire show,cast,and symphony were excellent! Looking forward to my next opportunity to attend an event here!

What a great place to see a concert. Super easy to get in and out of the parking lot. And it's a small venue so you know it will be an intimate show. I saw Seal here and can't wait to see another artist perform here.
