This community theater for the most part is awaiting the change of times and the disappearance of the pandemic. Still try to see this beautiful large complex . It is interesting. At the time of our visit no event available but the upcoming The Vagina Monologues were upcoming and advertised.
Venice Little Theatre was created in 1950s and is the largest community theatre in the United States !

After moving to Venice, we had heard so many good things about Venice Theater - so we decided to become season ticket holders. No regrets. The first show we saw was Young Frankenstein - which was great. The cast was super and we really liked the set design and construction. The volunteer seaters were very friendly and helpful also. Looking forward to the season.

Venice Theatre brings in talent from all over the States who put on fabulous shows. Local talent abounds as they put on plays and musicals that bring the crowds to their feet with applause. Fun and local in our charming downtown area with great restaurants gives us a great night out.

We attended a program on 4/12/21, the program was a Tribute to John Denver and the program was excellent. What was not so excellent was their spacing and social behavior and the Theatre personnel enforcing their rules. There were several patrons that decided they wouldn't wear facial covering as the theatre had announced several times before the performance. I noted the individuals and visited the volunteers to ask them to enforce their rules, Jeff the volunteer visited the patron and the fellow and lady up lifted their face covers. When Jeff left down came the covers...this game went on for 5 visits before the fellow in the party finally got the message. Down the aisle from was in row 2 seat 114 was and elder fellow. When the show started down came his mask and it remained down until he stood to leave 80 minutes. While Jeff stood monitoring the "5" person, he should have easily seen this old SOB with his mask looking like a bad Gracho Marks bowtie. When we first sat, the couple squawked our seats being too close, maybe they were so we relocated. But no seats are the minimum 6' apart. So if you're concerned about your health and social separation please don't go hear. Me I've had my 2 shots and more than a month since having them, but I'd guess that about 50% of the patron are not Florida residents and who knows what they've had.

We took our 5 grandkids for the Venice Theater’s first “flying” performance. It was outstanding. We attend many performances here each year. We live in Venice. Have friends coming next week. We waited too long. No seats available. My bad. Better planning next year.

I want to tell everuyone the Venice is a bad place because I don't want it to be over run. The truth is it is a great place and I love living here. We are so bless with a great Sen. Ron DeSants . Masks are not mandatory in the state of Florida. So don't let people tell you it is. That is truly against the law. That is one reason why ourVirus and deat5h count is low. Do your own homework . If you're scared to go out without a mask maybe you don't belong here. We love our state we love our beaches and we love our freedom.

We did not know the mask policy at this theater. The House Manager treated us so horrifically. I will never return. How were we to know we had to have masks for this show? He screamed at patrons. Jeff should be fired for his terrible behavior. Customer service was brutal. Terrible time. No House Mansger should ever display the terrible customer svc he exhibited. Made people feel terrible. Shame on you.

Went there to see a show and was told u must wear a mask doing the show . The whole state is open always has been another control and power thing . It's totally ridiculous and totally uncalled for. Will not be returning because of your power control u have lost a good customer .

Season ticket holders and can't wait for our next night out. Love this theatre, located in the historical district with many unique shops and eateries. Great little old fashioned ice cream shop.

Was in Venice for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. We have been to musicals and the such in larger venues but never to a play. Was very impressed! We saw, "To Kill a Mockingbird". Cast was amazing! Very friendly staff/volunteers. Comfy chairs. Would definitely consider visiting again.
