Really nice venue to watch a play or a show. It's very new and has great facilities. Only issue is parking is hard to find when there is a popular show on. There are restaurants near by for before or after the show.

I went to the Shenkman with friends to take part in a beginners pottery class. The class was amazing and we learned about many other continuing education opportunities. There is also some lovely artwork on display. I look forward to exploring more of its' options.

Excellent seating, great shows and community oriented. They have the Shenkman Hall and the Richkraft Hall which is used for smaller events or shows. Very friendly staff.

Lots of variety, decent seats and prices in a lovely complex that reminds one that public places can be function and creative.

I love theater and for years I've been going to the NAC or Centerpointe theater. I love both equally, the best part of a new, quite large theater is even more plays and musicals coming to the city. When I heard we were getting a...More
