  • Sam Payne

    There were way too many unnecessary bad words that kids don't need to be subject to. Also the elves broke character by showing their true size. It really bothered me.
  • Ms. SexyDiva2014

    There's no place to park. It's hot and smells like ass

    Join the Cloud Club and get pretty cheap season tickets. Also, park at UT and park for free and walk a short distance.

    Subscribe to the Club Jaeb singer-songwriter series on Monday nights. Eight concerts for around $100.

    If you need to use the bathroom during intermission, go up to the top floor. There are usually fewer people on that level.

    Thanks to Dr. Zena Lansky & Warren Williams for hosting Non-Profit Marketing Workshop II ~ Visit AFP Nature Coast & AFP Suncoast tables!
  • Charles Barnhill

    Event management alot to be desired...starting new lines, essentially letting people cut rather than taking from existing lines.
  • John M.

    Have your tickets delivered to prevent the futile attempt at interacting with the box office staff who are interested only in themselves.
  • Daphne English-Bazenas

    Maestro's on the River is closed due to wind. Plan to eat inside
