    "The newest performing arts center to northern Vermont does not disappoint. However, there are a few things to consider to make this a great visual experience for all members of your family. Our family kids ages 9 12 was excited to visit the newly opened SPPAC and we chose Celtic Crossroads as our first event. First off, the show and performance was amazing and a lot of fun to watch and listen. The theatre is a lot smaller than the Flynn Theatre. I would describe it as intimate and a perfect setting to get upcloseandpersonal with a performance. I recommend that you check their schedule for upcoming shows and grab the family for a night out. We reserved our tickets early and thought we were selecting an ideal rowseat for the performance. We chose the middle of first row M in the Mezzanine thinking that it would give our kids a higher vantage point. Unfortunately, there was a lightingsound board station position in the center last row of the Orchestra seats that made it difficult to have an unobstructed view of the performance. The staff was very apologetic and offered to move us during intermission, which two of us did. Ideally, the SPPAC should show this on the seat map when purchasing tickets. Now that we have been, we would recommend you consider the following seating areas as the best options for adults and kids 1. Front Row unlike the Flynn Theatre, the stage is only about 23 feet off the floor so you get the feeling of being on stage. And watch out, you just might find your self there. During our performance, the artists more than once tried to entice a kid or two join them! 2. Orchestra if not the first row, then we think rows DF would be best. Do note that the pitch in the Orchestra section is low so we would not recommend these seats for shorter members of your family. 3. Mezzanine as noted, you probably want to avoid the first row M but any row in the center is perfecting viewing and a great location for sound. 4. Box LeftRight if you can get some of the free standing seats closer to the stage, go for it. You are a little higher than the Orchestra seating so you have a nice view. A few other things to note The seats are little hard but I wouldn't say uncomfortable. Show called for 7PM, but lights went down 20 minutes later. Want to grab dinner beforehand? There is The Cottage located nearby that is as cozy and intimate as the SPPAC. A little pricey, but very convenient."
