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.

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

White Christmas at the Athens theatre put our family right into the Christmas spirit. The cast was tremendous great singing, acting, and dancing by all. The set and production was equal to the quality of the performers. We were also very impressed by all the staff at Athens Theatre they were all so pleasant and friendly. Thank you for a... More
