Just a "small town theater" with fantastic productions. Haven't seen a bad show yet bc and I've lived here for over 10 years. Worth your while.

Having been in Venice since 1980, I have seen Venice Theatre evolve over the years. We love going to performances here because of the intimate feel, whether the show is on The Main Stage or in The Pinkerton. The variety of its offerings has certainly...More
