We drove from Connecticut to see a Champions of Magic show at this Arts Center. The theater was fantastic and the stage was visible from all seats. Very clean theater with lots of ushers to assist with seating.

Lots of things to participate for a wide audience. A constant rotation of seasonal shows and events. I have a few months of things lined for adults and family shows alike. Lots of great places to eat as well just steps away.
