The soap opera extreme is what this extremely talented cast is presenting and this was the most enjoyable performance you could imagine. If you turn around every time you hear someone shout, "Hey, you" ---- have a room temperature IQ or the personality of a bureaucrat this isn't for you.

The Garden Theatre is happily situated right in the middle of Winter Garden's cultural center so there are plenty of bars and restaurants to sate your appetite prior to curtain call. It's a small building with lots of local charm and talent to boost. I saw "The Glass Menagerie" with friends and was pleasantly surprised with the creative choices. Plus,... More

We stayed in Winter Garden for a few nights and they happened to have a play running while we were there. We stopped at the box office and the lady was extremely accomodating.

Although I have been to this theatre many times, I recently had the pleasure of seeing their production of the musical "Bonnie & Clyde." The production was dazzling! The set was incredible and deserves awards for it's brilliance. The costumes were perfection. The singing was fabulous. The lighting and sound were supportive and perfect. I have watched this theatre grow... More

Quaint early 20th century design theatre, comfortably renovated seating. Not a bad seat in the place. Just saw A1 performance of "Bonnie and Clyde" the musical. Charming small town atmosphere with bars and restaurants outside. Can't wait until their next production.
