The little diner before the show was fast, friendly, and had good food for a reasonable price. The theatre was beautiful and I doubt there's a bad seat in there. It was a wonderful experience.

This theatre has a smaller seating area than the Schuster theatre. Both have a great variety of shows including family shows.

We attended the production of "It's A Wonderful Life: Radio Show." Unless there is a snow emergency declared they go on with the show. There were many empty seats, but we were so happy we went. It was a perfect way to get into the spirit of Christmas. Please note, the seats are older, and therefore smaller. PLEASE don't wear... More

I love the architecture in the Victoria. The staff is helpful and many are volunteers which tells you how much people enjoy the programs here. Smaller than other theaters in area, gives one a homey feeling. Great view not matter where you sit in the theater. Would love to see more events here!

While visiting my daughter in OH over the holidays, we had the pleasure of seeing Fiddler at this fantastic venue. It's small enough you can see and hear excellently from any seat in the house. I would definitely go back again. The whole Schuster Center is a great area.

We went to a concert here. Being my first time at this venue, I was totally impressed with how beautifully this grand, old building has been restored. I am excited about seeing more entertainment being held in this theater.

You'll be transported back in time when you walk into this historical theater. There are a wide range of plays and events held here, so there is sure to be one for you. There is a cocktail lounge in the lobby and restaurants close by.

It's always a joy going to the Victoria Theater in Dayton. The smaller sister of the new and modern Shuster Theater across the street it has a homey atmosphere of a bygone era. The facade has been beautifully restored and the interior acoustics upgraded. Orchestra seating is really orchestra seating, you will be right up next to the stage and... More

This is a terrific venue for Dayton's Broadway show visits and local groups, too! A great downtown gem!
