Over the years we've gone to many shows at the Schoolhouse Theatre, never been disappointed. A great way to support the arts on the Island. We saw "The Big Bang" out last visit. I'm always amazed at the incredible talent the Theatre has brings in

Too bad more people don't take advantage of the productions, they are professional and fun and well done.

I've been going to the schoolhouse theater for years, and the past few years have been their best. It's one of the highlights of the Island! Trey Compton and Mikey LoBalsamo were brilliant in this season's "The Big Bang".

We enjoyed two presentations at the theatre this season, Romance/Romance and Love Letters. Both were quite well done, and it was a treat to add these events to our time on Sanibel. The theatre is small, so there are no bad seats. While Romance/Romance is not a favorite play of mine, the actors were strong both musically and dramatically. I... More

This is a small intimate theater with seats on 3 sides. Great actors and plays. We saw :"Into the Woods" musical and we really enjoyed the show.

We visit Captiva every January, and always look forward to seeing a play at this intimate community theater. The quality of the productions is very good, and always entertaining

We saw into the woods at this intimate theatre. The cast was outstanding, a talented group who put on a clever rendition of this Sondheim performance. This theater adds a lot to the life on Sanibel and is real gem that is worth supporting! Definitely go .

I had the pleasure of seeing "Into the Woods", running through February 15, 2014. Amazing performances, beautiful sets and costumes. What a treasure!

I love the small theater. It is very quaint and good seats wherever you sit. It was amazing how 1 man can recite/play all 17 parts of the Shakespeare play. Since we went on opening night, they had a one-hour reception with snacks before the show.
