Parking is convenient but you'll need change for the small outdoor lot down the street. The Kofman Auditorium is part of Alameda High School, for those who might be otherwise confused.

Get your tickets on the side of the stage and get there early. Parking is a challenge as well.

Bad sound with mikes in and out, lighting was horrendous, male ensemble too young and not believable as Aggies, female ensemble too young and not believable as whores. Bad sets. Miss Mona one dimensional. And on and on...Peter del Fiorentino as...continued

ACLO does great shows at a great venue. Best Little Whorehouse was a frollicking good time. This year they have an excellent line up of shows! It's great that goldstar is giving these prices to make theatre more affordable.

More Information


Country comes to Broadway when Alameda Civic Light Opera presents The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, the story of a Texas brothel that, having existed peacefully for decades, faces sudden exposure and public outcry at the hands of an overzealous reporter. The 1982 film version starred Dolly Parton as Ms. Mona, the lovable madam of the house. Come watch the fate of the Chicken Ranch and its colorful ladies unfold to riotous country-flavored tunes and a rollicking good time!
