This isn't a huge venue so I'm not sure if there's a bad seat. The lighting and sound are flawless. The seats are comfortable and there is free parking just outside the door. There appears to be enough restroom capacity as I didn't see lines of women outside of the restroom entrance. The seats and been recently renovated and other... More

This was only our second time attending a show there and the only problem was we had to have our ticket scanned at another entry and then return to our section. The lighting and the sound is quite good and was well suited for both events we have seen there. Both shows were acoustic and vocal groups and very enjoyable.

the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art is on the campus and there are also a number of sculpture around the campus. Some very good works there. Worth a detour

The collection numbers close to 2000 pieces of art. Paintings, sculptures, installations , pottery, etc., etc, The museum has a cafe and gift shop in its modern two story building which I believe...

Yardley Hall at Johnson County Community College is smaller than huge auditoriums for live music, but that's part of what it makes it so nice. The acoustics are good, the lighting is good, the seats are comfortable, and there isn't a bad seat. I've been on the floor in front of the stage, in the balconies, and in the box... More

Six of us attended the 2:00 matinee on 5-7 and we had such a fantastic time. We had great seats and shared so much laughter.

We had a handicapped person with us and they really took care of her. Long before the concert was to start they approached her to ask her seat location and if she needed... More

A friend of ours sings in a choral group and we went to hear them. Between 40 and 60 men and women were on stage singing, some new songs and some old favorites. They sounded great, not a bad seat in the house. HIGHLY recommend and this concert was free and also the parking was close and free. If you... More
