Gorgeous theatre, fun with quality entertainment. Not to be missed, meet Dolores, Ms. Athens. She'll be the one with the fun personality, crazy hair and hats. Seating in balcony feels like a blast from the past...

I thiught the play was mediocre, but i live the theater. It's beautifully done inside and has comfortable seats, great lighting and a good sound system. There's not a bad seat In the house. We have enjoyed every time we've gone, regardless of the play.

Spectacular musical in a wonderful old theater. Gomez, Morticia, Pugsly, Wednesday, Lurch, Grandmama, and Uncle Fester were all portrayed to perfection. The theater was comfortably intimate with the ambience of the era it was built. DeLand supports the Arts by keeping productions of all types in this landmark building.

We saw "The Adams Family" and had a wonderful time. It was our first time in this theater, and we are buying tickets for more productions. Everyone was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. It is a great historic theater where all seats are close to the stage, making it an intimate experience. Even kid friendly, the staff provided booster seats... More

We are first year season ticket holders and this was our second play this year and it was mesmerizing! The acting, singing and costumes were just as good as the plays I've seen on Broadway. Mortia's costume was to die for! The theater is small and quaint and beautiful. If you come to DeLand you MUST go to the Athens.

Enjoy that I can order my tickets on-line and do not have to wait in line, just go right in. Excellent productions, costumes, and such a nice variety of performances. I enjoy parking my car then walking just a couple blocks and having dinner before the play.

Deland is the perfect small city to walk the streets and see all the shops have a great meal then finish your night off at the Athens. we have been going there for many years and have never seen a bad show. Top off with a glass of wine.

Went during non show or production hours. Visited the site. Met some staff. Did a brief tour. Likely to return for Adams Family

Every production at the Athens has been superb. Great local and nearby talent. My friends and I have had season tickets for 4 years now. Our routine is to dine in one of DeLand's many fine restaurants then hop on over to the Theater. There have been comedies, musicals, dramas, seasonal and youth oriented shows in the mix each year....

I've been there several times for musicals and for non-musicals. Each time, the acting has been superb. In the case of musicals, the performances are terrific. The costumes/sets/props, etc. are all professionally done. I've even seen their performance of a show I first saw done professionally in Washington, D.C. and believe the Athens' show was as good, if not better!
