I took my family to see a show last month and my girls still talk about how much they loved going to the Schuster! Everyone was so nice, and the seats just couldn’t be beat. We will definitely be going back again soon!

Great place to watch quality venues. There is no bad seats and the facility is very well maintained. Some shows can be rather expensive but it is always a good performance
