We have been to several productions here. If you like intimate, it is a great venue. It is possible to be up close and personal, with an actor just a foot away from you. Sometimes you forget you are on the audience, because you are almost on stage. They have several youth productions out of this theater, a great inexpensive... More

The Princess is an intimate little theatre located in historic downtown Sanford, FL. Most of their performances are put on by local folk, and you can see and hear the love for performing arts up close and personal. I don't know for certain, but am guessing it seats about 200 people, so no matter where you are, you are almost... More

This little theatre obviously operates on a limited budget. The cast of Spamalot was somewhat talented & entertaining at least through the 1st act. But because the seats were so uncomfortable, we couldn't stay for the 2nd act.

The Princess is a great local theater in the heart of downtown Sanford. Good performances are reasonably priced and you can get a great meal before or after in one of the nearby restaurants.

We attended a showing of "Moon Over Buffalo" on Saturday Aug 11. I enjoyed myself much more then expected. The staff and actors were very friendly before and after the show. The Theater itself is small which means everyone is close to the action. We all enjoyed the performance and will be back to see more. Tickets were only $15... More
