The main stage area has a resilient "sprung" high-quality, wood floor, as well as a sectional marley covering for dance performance.

We like to say that the star of our show is our intimate stage and comfortable house. Our acoustics are sublime, sight lines are amazing and the seating is comfortable with wide aisles. Only at Buckman can audiences get this close to the artists. Every show is a once-in-a-lifetime interaction between performers and patrons.

Cindi Younker, Director
