How was your experience?
This was my 1st ballet and I enjoyed the show a lot, the venue was another story... Wadsworth is basically a really big school auditorium. We spent the entire Intermission outside in line (in what seemed to be the freezing cold) for instant coffee and vending machine snacks. We spent $16 for 4 foam size cups of coffee, 2 bags of Mrs. Fields Cookies and 1 bag of Sunchips. Why there was only 1 concession stand with 3-workers for an auditorium that holds 500+ I have no idea! Once we finally got our snacks, the show had already started. We rush in only to find out that we're not allowed to carry in hot drinks! The lady working there would not even let me stand in the doorway to watch a show I paid for. I wanted to scream. Other than that the dancers in the show were all amazing. The children especially. I just wish it was at a better venue with way better customer service.
