Stay in one of the many accommodating hotels in Walnut Creek on your visit to this premier performance art center. The Lesher Center is a convenient attraction for visitors to Walnut Creek with several hotels nearby.  Ticket buying was smooth using their website.  It was easy to navigate, select tickets, seats, and pay for it.  A receipt will be quickly sent to your email together with the e-tickets. The night before the event you will receive an email reminder.  It will provide a link for parking reservation. How convenient is that? The first hour of parking is free. There is a bar with snacks.  There is seating available to enjoy your drinks before the show.  During the performance, drinks were allowed in the theater. The seats, lighting, sound system and staff were excellent. 

The theater actually has multiple theaters inside and is quite large. The decor feels very high school theater and the seats were definitely okay. The staff was warm and inviting and the place is super clean.  All in all a fantastic spot to catch some acting in downtown Walnut Creek. If Spontaneous Anything is there you would definitely go back to catch another fun filled show.
