The Lawrence Welk Theater in Escondido, California, is part of a one-time motel and nine-hole golf course that became the first in the luxury line-up of Welk Resorts. The theater is part of a vacation home property complex, complete with a championship golf course, that is represented by Resort Condominiums International. Show examples include everything from musicals such as "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" to a magic show called "Welk Illusions."
Theater goers have the option of show-only tickets or a matinee, evening or Sunday brunch buffet plus show option. Food is provided by the Canyon Grille. Members of the theater do get a break on the price. Tickets may be purchased online or at the door, except for groups of 10 or more, which must be booked direct. A special Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, entrance and seating are available.
The entire theater may be rented for corporate events or parties. The adjacent museum in the lobby provides space for vendor displays as well as a large DVD and video screens for Power Point and other presentations. Catering is available, as is live entertainment tailored to the event. The actual theater accommodates 339 people and is climate controlled.
