I have finally gotten around to going to Venice theater to see Hair and Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical. Had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the shows. It certainly is a wonderful little theater and have booked more shows to see in the future. Having grown up and lived within 15 miles of NYC I wasn't sure what... More

Went to the concert last night and if you closed your eyes you would believe you are listening to John Denver. He, Tom Becker, has so much talent. If you have the opportunity to catch the show...don't miss it! Excellant show!

This is a large community theatre in the heart of Venice, FL. I saw a preview of "Noises Off" last week. It was well done and very funny. The theater is across the street from a large parking lot and walking distance to some nice dining options. If you are in the Venice area it is worth a visit!

Great local theatre with wonderful performances throughout the year. The variety of shows is great and will please everyone. There is a main theatre and a smaller Pinkerton Theatre. Ticket costs are reasonable, many restaurants and shops in the area and ample parking.

When I moved from the Washington area I did not expect to find such quality theater in Venice. My theatre season ticket companions started at two of us. There are now 15. A subscription holder since 1998. I have only left two shows at halftime.

Best theatre venue on the west coast of Florida. Couldn't live without my season tickets - the shows are as professional as any I've seen in NYC and elsewhere. Acoustics are good everywhere, the shows are extraordinary, they have the best of choreography, managers, actors and employees, and variety of plays, both on the main stage and side venue. No...

Good play selection and musical acts. Two stages. One holds 90 seats and is an up close experience for drama and/or music. The large theater holds about 550 seats and uses local Florida talent as well as musical acts from around the country. Drama, comedy and musicals - they have it all at reasonable prices. Great staff and a large... More
