Wonderful shows, small venue, and good acting for a small theater. Venice theater is in the heart of downtown Venice. Parking is free and lots of it. They have many good plays and entertainment for all ages.

This place has so much talent inside of its doors. They offer a wonderful summer camp program for local kids. I recently saw a performance by one of the camps and was so impressed. This past winter I took my son to Mary Poppins and felt the same way. What a gem for our community!

Venice Theatre has many popular plays and for me, the best is the Loveland Follies put on every year by the students with disabilities from Loveland. Such a worthwhile show.

Venice is a small town between Sarasota and Fort Myers. Downtown Venice has a city square with lots to do and great places to eat. The beach is a little walk from the city square area. And in downtown Venice is a real gem. The Venice Theater. Two stages. Great live theater productions for a very modest price. This is... More

We went for the first time back in 2012. Have been many times since. I was used to the squishy seats on/off Broadway in New York. Here the seats felt Huge. The shows are fantastic. Everyone who works there are very friendly. The theater is in town so you can make a night of it eating at the finest resturants... More

I always enjoy the productions put on by Venice Theatre. The talent, costumes, and sets rival plays I've seen in Chicago. Thoroughly enjoyable entertainment

We have season tickets to the Venice Theatre and don't miss a performance. For a small town theatre, it is outstanding in every way. The variety of shows , the quality of the actors, the outstanding support staff, and the general atmosphere are excellent. And it's a great bargain in exchange for extraordinary entertainment.
