Have enjoyed various plays at Venice Theatre over the years. Intimate theatre but may be time to replace seats as they are somewhat uncomfortable.

For three years now, we’ve had 7-show series tickets to VT. Some shows are in the main theater, others are in the smaller, more “experimental” theater. Almost never are we disappointed in the selection of the show or the quality of the performance. Almost always,...More

Need some culture in your life (who doesn't)? Head to the Venice theater. You will be treated to some very good theater. Whether a musical, play or children's theater, go and you won't be disappointed.

What a lovely review! Thank you for taking time to enjoy the Cabaret Festival.

Have been to this Venice Theatre many times and would definitely recommend going. They have something for the entire family. Broadway, musical, younger, adult, main stage and smaller theatre. Something for everybody.

Venice Theatre is an excellent little theatre and a real treat for families expecting to 'only' enjoy more typical seaside activities when visiting Venice beach. The production of into the woods was outstanding, with almost all individual actors performing flawlessly and the overall cohesion and...More

Yes! There are spots designated for wheelchairs with companion seats next to them. There is an elevator should you want to select balcony seating.

The balcony is great for concerts and musicals. I like rows 5 thru 10 for dramas and comedies. Take a look at the 2016/17 season shows - order now for good seating. They have "season" tickets at reduced prices. Extreme... More
