Casual, but nice attire. Small theater - great seats all around. Free parking at the theater and across the street at the museum.

As always, Casa Manana puts on a great show. Our discounted seats from goldstar were the best seats in the house. 2nd row from the stage, right in the center, and luckily the seats in front of us were no-shows.

We thought this might be good for small children, but turned out they didn't appreciate it as we hoped. The story was rather strange.

Although we ranged in age from 64 to 84, we felt young again as we watched the wonderful presentation of Santa Claus the Musical. Excellent voices and a story I didn't know made for a most enjoyable evening.
