I love the Victoria theater, there is really not a bad seat in the house. I often attend musicals and plays at this venue and the only real drawbacks are that parking is about 2 blocks away and that the aisles are narrow so you sometimes feel like you are on top of the person in front of you (especially...

What a treasure they have in the downtown area of Dayton. This theatre has an amazing & tragic history but it's still going strong. Worth a visit!

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.
