Throughout the year there are many wonderful plays, musicals and concerts hosted at this precious gem of a theater. Pre and Post Show dining and cocktails are available within a one block walk and ample parking can be found nearby. The seating... More

My family and I have been residents of DeLand for nearly 40 years. We consider the Athens Theater to be one of our cultural gems. As a community theater its shows are always at a professional level. Outside venues have included the Righteous Brothers among other outstanding entertainers. The theater itself is in an intimate, historical building located in beautiful... More

The play was "Footloose" and it was the musical! The actors, singers and dancers were amazing! DH and I truly enjoyed ourselves! They were so good and professional! The theater was amazingly beautiful and the volunteers were really friendly. The seats were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and welcoming. We have been here before and continue to plan to...

I have attended many shows at the Athens over the past 2 years and feel so fortunate to have access to top notch community theater so close to home! The shows are really well produced and the proximity to the restaurants downtown make "dinner & a show" a monthly possibility! LOVE the Athens Theater!

I took my wife to a show featuring an a capella group at the Athens. This was both of our first time at this theater. From the outside, it looks like a typical theater from the 1930's - 40's, which is not a slander, but a beautiful thing. This is the real deal, box seats, balconies, and wonderful décor for... More

Blend is a group of young (23-33 years old) singers who perform Doo-Wop. They have no accompanying music and make all necessary 'musical' sounds by voice. This is fantastic and very entertaining. They performed a great mix of old time songs along with a gospel song and some excellent narrative tying it all together. An excellent afternoon of entertainment. My... More

A friend and I went to see Cabaret. The performance was excellent. I was impressed by the way the theater was decorated. We were in the fifth row center. Close enough to see a lot of detail in the costumes--which were great. I was so impressed that I bought season tickets for their 2015-2016 season.

This is a great place to see well-produced shows. Downtown DeLand is perfect for their quaint shops and places to dine, and then catch a show at Athens Theatre. All walking distance.
