I have attended many plays here. Yesterday, I attended the annual open house. They had an exhibit of costumes and props from plays through the years. It was fascinating to see the elaborate embroidery on the costumes, and the innovative props.They had interesting demonstrations of lighting and sound, showing how they use the latest technology. The show about props and... More

We attended Orlando Shakespeare's presentation of "Henry V" this March. It was EXCELLENT. The theater is small and intimate-the best kind of venue for Shakespeare. The costumes were traditional as was the staging, and all was excellently done. Tho Im not a huge fan of women taking men's roles in theater-and this rendition did a little of that-it was a... More

We saw Elephant Man. It was a very small theater and the actors and actresses did an amazing job. Friends of our gave us the tickets and I went kicking and screaming all the way. I had seen the production on Broadway years ago and from what I remembered it was depressing. These people were professional and could have easily... More

I have been a season subscriber for years. Orlando Shakes never disappoints and delivers first rate professional theatre for every performance. Buy your season tickets early!

The theater is a nice size and the chairs are comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the play and felt the actors did a phenomenal job. We enjoyed it so much we will be going to the next signature series play in February. One advice if you want a drink or snack for intermission pre-order it before the show starts, the lines... More

We attended "A Christmas Carol"_on Christmas Eve. It was a wonderful performance with great actors! The second grader who played Tiny Tim, as well as additional roles, was absolutely adorable. We have attended other performances at this theater. We always go away happy and this time was no exception. The seats are a little narrow if you are overweight, but... More

We attend "The Shakes" often, and always enjoy the performances. The cast is talented and accomplished, the sets are creative, and the productions are top notch. We also enjoy the intimacy of the small theaters in which the audience is very close to the stage and often surrounded by the action and actors as they enter and exit - sometimes... More
