Having the Pickford volunteer appreciation party at The Upfront Theatre was wonderful! The space was ideal for having food and drinks before the show while mixing and mingling. The Upfront staff were the perfect hosts, and it was such a creative, unique way to treat our hardworking volunteers. There’s no better way to celebrate the end of a great year than by toasting and laughing – and laughing and laughing and laughing – with those that helped make it so great.

We booked the Upfront Theatre for an Employee Appreciation event this past March. It was a blast! The performers were AWESOME and we even had some of our employees join them on the stage. We brought in dinner and had drinks – the evening was a HUGE success and enjoyed by all.

Doing a private event at The Upfront Theatre was not only fun, worth it, but EASY. Everyone I worked with had a community mindset, clear communication, was VERY quick to respond, very kind and helpful. I would 100% recommend doing a show with the Upfront they exceeded EVERY expectation that I had. Billy, Matt and Kris worked so hard and I am singing their praises when asked about the Upfront.

The performers should be certified as fitness trainers, my abs hurt for days from laughing so hard. I think I lost weight!

The Upfront Theatre performers helped us take a standard event and elevate it to a new level of entertainment that made our attendees feel appreciated and most importantly added some fun for everybody.

Thank you for providing such a memorable performance… the show was outstanding and kept everyone laughing, not only throughout the performance but for days afterward. Your team was professional and well prepared to cater to our specific group.

The Upfront Theatre was perfect for our private event! The performers were wonderful and very good at what they do. The performance was laugh out loud funny and left our faces hurting from all of the laughter.

The Upfront Theatre made our holiday event very memorable. I recommend the theatre to anyone that is interested in having a great time with a ton of laughs.

We weren’t sure if The Upfront was a venue our employees would enjoy, but we booked a private show because we wanted something different; an opportunity for our employees to say, “Remember that holiday party when…..” By holding our holiday party at The Upfront that is exactly what we got, a night filled with memorable moments! The performers tailored their acts to our company, and the night was nothing but laughs. I highly suggest holding your event at the Upfront Theatre.

The Upfront is consistently a fantastic experience and completely unique each time as well. You can go see the same themed show with the same performers and it will be a totally different show each time. The Upfront is never a repeat or a rerun and always, ALWAYS funny!! In fact, the only negative thing about The Upfront is that your sides will probably ache and your face may be sore from laughing so much!

The Upfront Theatre is a true gem in the community! The Cascades Job Corps students and staff had an incredible time sharing an interactive, welcoming, and hilarious evening that brought a diverse group of people together in a unique an memorable way. We can’t wait to do it again soon!

The Upfront Theatre performance was funny, entertaining and helped make our holiday party a huge success!
Alpha Technologies, Inc.
I was looking for a different holiday experience for our staff party this year. The Upfront Theatre did an amazing job entertaining us all! The talented performers kept us laughing all evening. Combined with the fact that we all dressed up in costumes to celebrate our own “Hallomasgiving” (Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas mash up), it was a crazy, fun staff party!
Carolyn Saletto, Gym Star Sports Center | Owner
I would absolutely hire The Upfront Theatre again! Very professional from my first interaction with Matt to working with Peter in the tech booth and Rachel in the bar to Yonk and the performers. Really a spectacular job. I knew it would be funny but was blown away by the high level of professionalism as well. I will highly recommend to others as well. I am happy to be used as a reference to anyone wondering if this is something they should try. Well done to the whole team there at The Upfront.

The Upfront Theatre performance was the most memorable part of the MVHS Grad Night event. We parents plan to make a trip up there one night to see what the kids so thoroughly enjoyed!
Michael Marken, Mount Vernon High School | Grad Night
We have had The Upfront for last five years of Grad Night events. Each group has been new and different but fun and enjoyable. They did a great job keeping it age appropriate and keeping the kids engaged throughout the entire show.
