Our unit was nicely sized and very adequate, although the decor is somewhat dated. Balcony was tiny. It was a good base for exploring the area. Our unit did not have washer/dryer, but we were walking distance to the resort laundromat. It's located by the pool, so you can throw a load in and sit by the pool till it's... More

My wife and I went to see My Fair Lady at the Welk Resorts Theatre and had a nice time. The play which we have seen before was done very well. Lance Arthur Smith who played Higgins was the best ! His voice and acting skills were enjoyable to watch throughout the entire play. Also Randall Hickman who played Mr.... More

Great little theater except for the inconsiderate/ignorant young lady beside me who thought that the darkened theater was a great place to use her bright cell phone. All the seat are great as all are close to the stage. My fair lady was fabulous.

The theatre is a good size, not a bad seat in the house. It has movies, live entertainment and plays, at least while we were there. The Neil Diamond Experience entertains every Wednesday evening throughout most of this year. It's more than a Tribute show really, but one of the best ones we've ever attended. You are totally immersed, kind... More

Welk theatre is a gem, intimate with only about 11 rows, great sound and lighting And music is live. The cast were just excellent over the years we have been to a number of shows all of superior quality. Welk guests get 10% off. If you like theatre Not to be missed if you are in the area.

We have been to Welk Resort in Escondido 3 times and each time have attended a theater production. This production (My Fair Lady) was by far the best, even though previous ones have been very good. Excellent music, great choreography, and a good set. We have attended several broadway productions, and this is very close in quality.

Saw the show with my with my wife tonight. What an absolutely fabulous performance. The intimate setting and top quality performers made it a fantastic evening. A true gem in North San Diego county. We'll be back for more.

This show was festive, fun and entertaining. The four actors/singers were so talented as were the musicians. The show was full of music and comedy. The theater is a nice size theater. Refreshments were available. There are several pieces of memorabilia to look at in the theater.
