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.

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!

Going to a show in an old theater is much more enjoyable than going to a large auditorium. Our seats front row of balcony were quite good. One of the lights caused a bit of interference to one of our friends. We were glad that the desk clerk at our hotel printed out for us a parking map. The theater... More

It was a good thing that they saved this place. The theatre was nicely remodeled and is a great piece of Deland history. It is a small place, but the talent and shows here are big. Stroll downtown, go see a show, and then have dinner afterwards. It will make a great night out.

What a rip roaring good time. The Athens theatre productions have just kept knocking it out of the park. So much so we bought season tickets this year. We are looking forward to all the special memories we will have here. As always it is a classic building to spend an evening in. Kept on great condition buy all the... More

DH and I have season tickets because when we saw the 2016-2017 season, we wanted to attend every play! When you buy the season tickets, you select which seats you'd like to sit in for each performance. We would rather know, in advance before attending where we will sit. This year the list of plays had a people's choice at... More
