We took friends to see Oklahoma last winter. The facility is really nice. The staging and performance was excellent. Most of the work for staging etc is done by volunteers and they do a great job.

Top community theater. The theater is beautiful and the plays are always entertaining. Easy location surrounded by lots of great restaurants to enjoy before or after the show.

They have a sign, but not out on the highway--and you can't tell what's playing without walking up to the ticket booth. But that's not why I am writing this review.

Venice Theatre has been entertaining me for14+ years with a variety of shows from musicals to comedies to drama, and the ticket prices are very reasonable for quality shows. The Pinkerton Theatre adds dimension and zest with its provocative plays! It's always a great evening out!

Whenever in Venice, we attend at least one performance at the Venice Little Theater. Situated in the heart of picturesque Venice, across from Centennial park, the Venice Little Theater is one of the great 'gems' of this beautiful city. With easy access to free parking, very reasonable ticket prices for all performances, and within walking distance of great restaurants ,... More

I love this theatre which offers plays in the big area and improve in the small area of the theatre. This theatre also offers some great programs for children during the summer. My son took a two week summer program here as a teenager and he just loved it. Many children go on with their acting careers after spending a... More
