I seek out places that have live music. Olney Theatre is excellent quality. I have seen about six shows here. I believe they have 3 theaters on site. Very professional and welcoming. I really like the space and the people that work here.

This theater has three venues with very different characters which allows the center to tailor the venue to the production. They can do large Broadway type productions competently but really excel at new and small productions in their intimate setting. We are now traveling from Virginia regularly to see productions.

Cast, costumes, choreography, directing - it was an incredible show! Our expectations were average, and we were blown away by the quality of the production and the acting and singing.

My husband and I visit family in Olney in December,on a biannual basis. Whenever we are in town, one of the "must-dos" is to see a performance at the Olney Theater Center. The theater is housed in a lovely, well-appointed building, and the layout of the seating is such that there really is not a bad seat in the house!... More

This theater offers great options (i.e. musicals and plays) for new and seasoned fans of all ages. Great deals year-round (and great sales!), and have never gotten a bad seat. What a fun and wonderful community treasure!

My husband and I have seen a couple of shows here, today we saw The Nutcracker. The play was very good. The sounds was good, seating comfortable and price was fair at $35 a person. The seats are comfortable, however, you may want to bring a pillow for the kids to sit on so they can be high enough to... More

Nothing to dislike. If you like to see live performances. This is where you need to be. Great location, easy parking, and a real treat of an evening.
