Member Tips

Parking is $5 in the adjacent CSULB lot. Long lines to get in and out, so be prepared.

They blocked the exit on to Atherton, which is normally a quick exit for patrons that park in the parking lot next to Atherton, had to wait til most of the crowd cleared to exit the same way that we entered. Bummer

We Love this venue. The Carpenter center doesn't have a bad seat. The $5.00 parking is reasonable and plenty of spaces. Always a good show!

Great performance by Musical Theatre West - All of the dancers are outstanding & play the part as actors as well. 2 hours of non-stop enjoyment in a "stadium seating"... continued
