The Lesher Center is a beautiful performing arts center. We recently saw Women in Jeopardy and I love the small theater where every seat is perfect. It was fun to be so close to the stage. We also like the fact that wine can be purchased and brought into the theater while watching the show. Having the art gallery is... More

A very attractive, modern performing arts center that regularly books touring companies from San Francisco and national acts in addition to local Contra Costa productions. Comfortable seats and beautiful theatre spaces - especially the large theatre. Convenient to walk to from Bart Station.

I love seeing plays and musicals at Lesher Center. There really isn't a bad seat in any of the theaters, especially the main one. I have been here many times with my 90-year-old mother, and it is easy for her to get in and out, and the ushers and other staff are very friendly and accommodating. Having a parking garage... More

This little local theater is big on entertainment. Located in downtown Walnut Creek, Ca. I have been a patron for many seasons and because of the caliber of shows will continue to be. They have comedys, drama, musicals, childrens productions, lecture series, and other events. There is something for everyone. A friend and I just went to see Baskerville: A... More

The performances have been stellar. I have always been able to get a single ticket when I wanted. I enjoyed the acting and musical events equally.

My husband and I have attended many shows at the Lesher Center and can't recommend it highly enough. We've seen dramas, musicals, comedies, and reviews. Every seat in every theater (there are three of different seating capacity) is excellent. Performers and direction are first rate. As former New Yorkers who love theater, we feel that we have lucked out. Those... More

The Lesher Theater is a comfortable and convenient local theater for the performing arts. We particularly enjoy the Gilbert and Sullivan musicals. In addition to fine theater, there is adequate convenient parking and a host of local restaurants nearby. We are very grateful for their Gilbert and Sullivan series.

This is a multiplex performing arts theater with an art gallery and wine. Pick a play or concert and enjoy. Parking is available next door. I've been a frequent visitor since its opening in the 90's.
