Les Miserables!
During the first few acts I had no idea what was happening. I knew this was a musical but I didn't read Wikipedia or cliffs notes before. The performance was enjoyable but my favorite part was seeing little kids belt their voices out. Wow amazing if I could only do that too. The costumes were great and the orchestra seating maybe viewing ideal. I was sweep away by the singing and felt like I was in the French Revolution.

I will try to see more plays and musicals because I am hooked.

Theater, concert hall, and large venue site. From Toby Keith to the chieftains, Merle hanger. Great venue including box seats

I've been here to see many an event. My favorite spot to sit is the mezzanine. In the small balconies. Not the best acoustics but it is a great place for local Escondido

A great place to catch the ballet, theater, or even opera -- I've seen countless performances here, and even performed here myself as a teenager in my competing chorus. There's often some fun exhibit happening here.

The Center for the Arts in Escondido is a very nice venue for concerts, plays, weddings, and other large events that are held in Escondido. I would like it more if they could pull in some of the Broadway plays that are usually held in downtown San Diego. I think it is big, but not quite big enough. By the way, the first four photos in the photo gallery are not the Escondido Center for the Arts.

Great intimate theater to catch a show!

I attended Theatre Royal's production of "Les Miserables" & found the California Center for the Arts quite charming. Not a huge venue, which allowed everything to seem more personal.

Easy to find & free parking!

Highly recommend!
