This is a lovely venue. The orchestra seating was very comfortable and the acoustics excellent for the recent Johnny Mathis concert. The theater is a wonderful Worcester facility which hosts many fine performers and productions.

This place is beautiful! It’s staff are friendly and you really feel engaged. I feel no seat is a bad seat in the theatre. The parking and area is a little rough but that’s downtown Worcester. Arrive early!

We typically open the gate to the lobby about an hour before the show. What time we open the doors for you to take your seat, however, depends on the show.
