We have visited Venice Theatre several times and have been very pleased with every event except for our last. We saw The Buddy Holly Story Musical which was fantastic. Our next show was the Kingston Trio. There were no original members, however they played ALL the music of Kingston Trio and were very good and entertaining. Our third show was... More

Thank you for your feedback. Our marketing director did reply to your email and forwarded your comments to the producing director who booked the act so he can take your opinion into consideration when booking concerts for next season. As with most shows, feedback varies and many audience members have enjoyed this act over the years. Usually we post videos... More

It took several visits to Venice to finally make it to the local community theatre, located in the midst of the quaint downtown. Easy to park, easy to walk down the street to one of a number of good restaurants. The performance took place in the larger of two theatres on site. Comfortable seats, good sound quality and very good... More

We saw Mary Poppins last night....an amazing production for such a small city. We have now booked another play, Fox on the Fairway, since we enjoyed it so much. The seats, sound, staging, intermission bar and staff are all excellent.

This was our first visit to this theatre, but it will not be our last. All the seats were comfortable and acoustics were excellent. Bar service during intermission was speedy. The backdrops for the play were the best we have ever seen.

A gang of us went to the Venice Theatre to see the rock group "The Diamonds". We knew it would not be the original players since the band originated in 1954 with hits like Little Darlin', Why Do Fools Fall in Love and of course The Stroll. With that said, they were fantastic. The four-part harmonics were precise and beautiful.... More

While in Venice, Florida we acquired tickets for Mary Poppins at the Venice Theatre. The performance was thoroughly enjoyable and the ability of the cast was unexpected. We were prepared for a nice night but what we got was a cast that had obviously been working very hard and had been directed extremely well. Naturally, it was not Broadway, but... More

I attended a performance of Ring of Fire. The space in which it was presented can be arranged to suit the production and this arrangement was chairs on risers. This provided each person a very good view of the performers. Each performer was very talented and made me believe they were having as good a time as we, the audience,... More

The Island of Venice is a wonderful resort town and is the home of countless stores and restaurants to make your vacation complete. But the gem of the town is The Venice Theater. I recently attended a performance of "The Buddy Holly Story" at the theater, and from entering to leaving everything was the best it could be. The theater... More
