Before entering the theatre, guests enjoy their time in our stunning box office/ lobby area.
There is also a spacious backstage/green room for performers.
We pride ourselves in focusing on the importance of giving back to the community and volunteer at several events throughout the year to support veteran’s, food pantries, the elderly and the public school system.
