I took my 2 year old to see Rapunzel. She loved it. The play was geared towards kids of all ages with audience participation and a shorter show time. The actors were so nice when they waited outside to meet each of the kids and take pictures with them or sign their programs. My little girl had such a great... More

Orlando Shakes consistently presents a great show. From classic Shakespeare plays to entertaining shows for kids to experimental new works, we have always been impressed with the quality of the acting and level of production that goes in to their presentations. Our latest trip was to see Rapunzel. My kids loved getting to speak with the characters after the show... More

Orlando Shakes has a great thing going with all the summer camps they provide for kids, season passes for theater-enthusiasts, and some of the best performances in Orlando. You'll enjoy everything about this place, from the scenic location, to the courteous staff inside... please don't miss this opportunity!

We came to watch Julius Caesar which was acted by 7 brilliant actors who managed to look like 15 different actors. Mark Anthony's speech was fantastic. I took two teenagers who whilst not enthralled, did enjoy themselves and I thought it was marvelous. It is a small theatre so not a bad seat in the house. I would recommend eating... More

We saw the play The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and it was very entertaining. We were on Spring Break and my child's school requires cultural events to be turned in. I took advantage of the fact that we would be traveling and I am so glad I came across this event and that it was during our... More

The play acting was very good; we saw Pluto. The building houses more than one theater and it is pretty impressive. My only complaint is that there is a strong smell of mold or mildew in the theater itself which nearly took my breath away. I don't know if it is permanent or associated with some of the set but...

We attend all the performances at the Orlando Shakespeare theater that we can make. The acting is terrific and they take on different ad unusual performances. They just completed Nicholas Nickleby and even with as long as it was-I hated to see it end. Get a ticket-you will not be disappointed.

Wow, the “Nicholas Nickleby” - Part 2 show was spectacular. I just wish we had been able to see Part I, not that it made this show any less great. It just took us a few minutes to understand what was going on. This is like theater in the round. The actors were all super. They showed lots of enthusiasm.... More

Had not been to the Orlando Shakespeare Theater in a while and was amazed to see the transformation. The lobby is very large and has a very nice gift shop, appropriately 'artsy' decor, and sells snacks, wine and beer prior to the show and during intermission. In fact, you can pre-order your drink and it will be waiting for you... More
