The interior of the Alex Theatre

Located in the heart of Glendale's business and entertainment district, the 1,413-seat Alex Theatre has been a California landmark since 1925. Originally a neighborhood vaudeville house and movie palace, today the venue serves as a world class performing arts center and home to Shakespearience, California's number one field trip.

I think this was the best field trip I've ever been on! The Alex Theatre is a beautiful place and I hope to see more of it in the years to come. Thank you so much for putting on this amazing show and I hope you keep the legacy of Shakespeare going for decades!
