Well-done production in an intimate venue
Mar 2017 • Family
We saw the play "To Kill a Mockingbird" at this theater recently. This production was incredibly well-done - we were impressed with the caliber of acting and wonderful emotional storytelling. The theater is located in an interesting area, with small businesses up and down the street, I believe it used to be an old movie house. The box-office is outdoors, so if there's a line, it snakes down the sidewalk, fine if the weather is decent ;-). The lobby is quaint, the concessions are well-priced and they have wine and beer. Its an old building with an old feel, but personally, I found it charming, except for the seats...some seemed OK, but they definitely could use an upgrade - my seat had lost its padding, and squeaked when I moved (I'm an average-sized person). The size of the house seems just right for a community theater, though not sold-out the day I went, the theater felt full and the energy from the audience seemed to feed the production in a positive way. I sat in the back and could hear very well - even though they didn't seem to use microphones for this show - I saw hanging mics above the stage, so I'm guessing they use them for their Musicals. Happy to now know about this theater, I will definitely return for another production. If you go, do not park at the lot nearest to the theater, it is owned by other nearby businesses and they tow :-( However, there is plenty of free street parking and one of our favorite Vegetarian restaurants, Blossom, just around the corner from the theater.

Nice little Venue
Dec 2016 • Couples
Renton civic theater is a community theater that hires local talent and produces a wide variety of show. It may have been a movie theater converted to a stage, but the acoustics are great and it's a large stage that allows for both small and medium sized productions.

It's operated by talented volunteers whose passion for the performing arts puts this in a class with the very best of small town local theaters.

Sit back and enjoy a show - you're there for the arts.

Lively entertainment on a budget
Sep 2016 • Couples
Witness live theater at its finest. Wonderfully talented cast members present musicals and plays to entertain and enlighten. Support live theater and buy a flex pass to receive tickets to all six shows (3 musicals and 3 non musicals). Or for under $25 go to a play!! Take a friend, take a couple friends...
