We saw a Broadway Show, Very friendly staff, Food & drinks available at intermission. Cast came outside to greet all those attending at the end of the performance.

What a find. I knew it was there, however, I did not know it was up and running. Saw "The Miracle Worker". FABULOUS production. Young girl who played Helen Keller was OUTSTANDING. just go once and you will be hooked like me.

I love their shows. I can't say enough positive things about this theater. The talent they find for their shows is outstanding, from Les Miserables to The Miracle Worker. Plays & musicals, band & tributes. I love it. It enhances the town immensely. The staff is friendly, informative, and want you to have a good time. Great for a weekend.... More

My husband and I took our 13 year old daughter to see the Miracle Worker. We drove to DeLand thinking we'd catch a classic movie only to find out-- better yet-- it was a live performance. The woman at the box office helped us select great seats. The theater is a hidden gem and the play's production was impressive. The... More

"The miracle worker" The ambiance is amazing! The place is fantastic! The seats are comfortable and everything about this theater is high class! The actors and production of the play were great! They draw you into the story and you are transported to another place and time. The balcony is great and you can see really well from there. They... More

My husband I visited to see Las Misre but I have see other plays. I really like this theatre because of quaint “old time” feel. The shows I’ve seen there took me back in time. Oh what fun!

I am so happy that the people in DeLand decided to renovate this beautiful structure back to its original form! I have been to several plays here and was blown away with the exceptional talent. My favorite play Les Mez was outstanding and every show pretty much was sold out. Will definitely attend more plays when we are in town.

Went to an AMAZING Legally Blonde show with a group of 8 people. Picked our seats straight from the diagram on their ticket website's seat chart (5 seats in row L and 3 right behind it in row M and the night of the show instead of the rows being L,M,N (our tickets were in rows L and M) the... More

Hello Kathy, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our production of Legally Blonde, but heart broken to hear about your experience with the seating mix up. My House Manager did inform me that this happened, although I was unaware of any discomfort caused to you by how the situation was handled. Until this occurrence, I was not aware... More
