We saw a Christmas show that involved local school and adult choirs. I received the tickets as a compliment from the Schuster. Glad I didn't pay.

Just went to the Schuster Center to see the Wizard of Oz. While the actual show could be considered average to a little above average, the Theatre is Beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit

This is a great theatre for music with state of the art acoustics. The Rockin’ Series with traveling tribute bands playing favorite music with the Dayton Philharmonic is a very fun series. The facilities are very nice, and refreshments are available beforehand and at intermission.
