If you want to experience music, dance or plays in a no hassle environment, this is your place. From parking to concessions, no hassles. I've been a season subscriber for five years.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Valley Performing Arts Center. The musical, Dreamgirls was incredible and the theatre was well designed, beautiful with great acoustics and sight lines. We look forward to our next visit.
