We have a lot of great spots to catch live music in SoWal, but it's hard to match the atmosphere and intimacy of the REP Theatre main stage in Seaside. Every seat in the house is a good one, there's only 75, which almost gives it a living room atmosphere. Exceptional artists in an intimate setting, with beer & wine served! Be sure to catch a show at The REP before or after dining at one of Seaside's excellent restaurants.
