Never been to this theater, or any theater in the round. Are there any theater sections that are considered more desireable than others?
Is there a general membership available. Looking for a gift for a friend.
I used to volunteer as an usher there. I agree that there is generally no bad seat. There is something called the "Vom" which they use to bring things into the stage area. I prefer to sit ACROSS from it rather than above it so I can see it arriving rather than having it appear under me. In Mary Poppins the bird lady sat on a stage and if you had been above her you would have also been behind her.
Hi: Go to their website (They won't let me write it here but you can Google North Shore Music Theatre, Beverly, to find the website. ) Then click on the heading "Box Office." Under that, click on "Seating." You will see a diagram of the theater and can decide what you want. Basically, all seats are good but of course being ring-side will give you a close-up view. Even in the last row, which we were at Christmas, you're not far away at all. You will enjoy yourself. Have fun.

There is not a bad seat in the house. My wife and I have been season ticket holders for many years and usually have seats in sections A, B, or C. We have sat up front and towards the back. We found the we like seats towards the back because you get a view of the whole stage and the isles that are used by the actors & crew, You will see actors backs at times but they are pretty good about making sure they change up the direction they are facing.
We always try to get seats in Sections A or B. There really is not a bad seat in the house, but we like to be behind, or beside the orchestra pit. Go on line, and get a seating chart, and see for yourself. Enjoy, it is a great theater.
I'd agree with prior answer.
There are pros and cons to all sections. As performance pieces take part in areas other than the stage, you may find yourself having to crane your neck around to watch, but these are only usually short pieces. Generally the views are pretty good everywhere.
I always opt for the front few rows personally and have never been dissapointed.
