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.

We were fortunate enough to catch a good performance of Caberet at this venerable theater. How wonderful that this community can have an appropriate space for really excellent entertainment. If this show is representative of its offerings I would not hesitate to come any time we are in the area. First rate, good accessibility, wonderful area restaurants that support the... More
