A Rare Find in a Live Theater I am originally from New York and grew up going to the theater on Broadway. Orchestra tickets when I was young were $9.99 now Broadway is $200 or more. The Kimball Theater is $18.95 with a 15 or 20% discount for annual members. You can actually see live actor playing in colonial garb... More

While eating, we came across 4 actors from this production. They made us laugh and encouraged us to see their play. It was not a planned activity but I am glad we went. It was the highlight of an otherwise awesome day in Colonial Williamsburg. Funny play with audience participation. My kids are 12 and 10. They could not stop... More

The Kimball Theatre is a good venue for stage shows. When in the Williamsburg area I always check to see what's scheduled at the Kimball. The shows are good and the prices are fair, so check it out when you are in The area.

This theatre is on Merchant's Square, and it's a fantastic venue! If ever in Williamsburg, be sure to check their lineup for the dates you're there. Great for concerts, plays, or lectures.

Not to be missed if you are in town and available on a Thursday evening! Fantastic production by CW! Wonderful, funny, entertaining - great production and actors. A sample of the way theater and life was in the 18th century. This was originally performed as a play in 1747. A MISS IN HER TEENS is the story of a wealthy... More

This beautiful theater is located right in downtown Williamsburg on the bustling Duke of Gloucester Street. It's a great space for movies, performances, and community events. The past several times I've visited the Kimball, hoping to catch a movie, I've been disappointed in the selection. Many of the movies showing are already available on video, or were released months ago.... More

We saw the Williamsburg Symphonia perform their Christmas concert here this past weekend. The concert itself was excellent. The quality of the orchestra really stood out. The theater was an excellent place to take in a concert. It is small enough to have an intimate feeling. Highly recommended.

Located on Merchant's Square, the Kimball Theater is the venue for a variety of performances. We have seen conversations with historical figures (eg. Patrick Henry), concerts, movies and on this visit a comedy ensemble portraying an 18th century traveling show. The audience for "A Grand Medley of Entertainment" roared with laughter and the giggles from the children were a delight... More
