A Disney show that was outstanding, the performance by all was truly memorable. Story telling at its best with the set and props( magic carpet) was amazing. The best performance we have seen in a long while. Excellent job.

Great seating with unobstructed views and good sound. Very easy to get to, with options for drinks or dining before the show. You are also permitted to takes drinks into the theater. Parking is in adjacent building for $15 the evening I attended.

I had heard a lot about this play and finally had a chance to see it. We were all happy and entertained. The staff at the Hobby Center are most helpful and professional as they guided us to the private reception and then the play.

Great place! Great show! Do not not sit on balcony close the stage because they have bad view. We had to move our sides to see.

Home to musicals, plays, symphonies. Discounted season passes for multiple shows. Night time and afternoon matinees. Broadway musicals are the best!
