WE enjoy season tickets to the Amelia community theater. Their latest play, "These Two Couples Went to Italy" was great. Well performed and directed and very funny. We look forward to all their productions. They have amazing talent for such a small island.

I have just completed watching a full season of shows at Amelia Community Theatre and enjoyed them all. I'm continually amazed at the talent on this island and that a volunteer organization can gather such stellar resources. If there isn't a play on the main stage, alternate months offer something in the more intimate Studio 209 right next door. A... More

Really surprised at how much we laughed last night and how good the actors were! I would suggest hiring a professional lighting person as that was very distracting and obviously overlooked. I would highly recommend and definitely go back!

Becky's New Car--total entertainment!!! We went with no expectations and left so pleased that we attended. Cynthia Riegler and the entire cast were energetic, professional and fun--with a bit of seriousness when appropriate. They stayed on stage and everyone could walk by and congratulate.

Nice presentation of Picnic by the Community Theater. Very small theater but comfortable seating. Tickets a little pricey for the venue. Limited facilities. Staff nice.

Was looking for something to do on a rainy night at beach and remembered that there was a play opening at this theater on Thursday night. Since it was opening night for "Picnic" parking was a bit of an issue but that was more than overcome by the fact I was able to buy one of the last available seats... More

The players were amazing. As a first time attendee, I was very impressed with the area, the building, the way everything was handled, and most of all the very talented cast. I will truly visit this theater again. The season tickets were not overly expensive, but I am just too far to justify. For now, the onesy-twosy plays will suffice.... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! We had traveled to Amelia a few months back to attend another production somewhere else and were less than impressed. So happy we returned to see I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change at Amelia Community Theatre. IMPRESSIVE! The staging, the direction and the talent were outstanding. The theatre is beautiful!

My family and I take this cultural event in as often as is practical without actually being season ticket holders. Don't take that the wrong way (there is only so much community theatre one can take in a given year). The company includes devoted members, to be sure. The physical structure is superior to what you would expect to find... More

We were lucky enough to come across this delightful community theatre and catch the opening night of Inherit the Wind. The theatre is in the historic district, a few blocks off Centre Street. The performance was well done and, given its size, there isn't a bad seat in the house. Of particular note was the welcoming staff and friendly atmosphere.
