Reasonable cost. Not stupid crazy prices like NYC. Nice mix of various attractions. Great and talented performers. Worthy of a big city venue. Ample parking. Nice staff from box office to ticket takers to ushers. Has balcony seating though not often used. Not sure if handicap accessible up there.

Very clean and well laid out . Saw Saturday night fever musical there and it was wonderful. Gabriel Reyes who played Cesar in the musical did justice to the Latino dancer who out dances Tony the John Travolta character. Wonderful venue

Top notch entertainment for reasonable prices. Can't beat the shows, but their new programs are really fun. Their Tuesdays with Stories programs are held at 12 and 7 and examine books and have a one-person interpreter who acts out some of the scenes...followed by a Q and A with the artist. At lunch there are small snacks with a $5.00... More

Brings to our local community concerts and shows at very reasonable prices. The theatre is always kept clean and the volunteer ushers are older residents of the community.

Listen, it's not Broadway so please don't be disillusioned by the five star rating I gave it. That being said, you can absolutely see a fantastic show for a great price locally without heading into the city. We have not been disappointed at RVCC's theater. We've seen ballets and plays and musicals and it's been a great night out with... More

The RVCC Theater is a great local place to see shows. It's in a suburban area and there's lots of parking on campus. It's too bad Tripadvisor doesn't have any way to rate the other gem on campus - the planetarium! It's on the other side of the campus and even has a new observatory! They do a number of... More
