“Stunningly beautiful early 1900's historic theater. "The Rainmaker" was VERY well done.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Excellent acoustics and comfortable seating. Like stepping back in time. The cast, while locals, were excellent...much more similar to a traveling group (which visited the theater in its heyday.)

The interior of the theater is STUNNING!

“Gorgeous restoration!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

This building is a real treasure and I'm so thankful it's been preserved, and is continuing to host entertainment of a community theater sort. We were very comfortable in the seats and found the price to be reasonable. I would return.

“Fun musical theater with great talent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This historic theater is itself worth a trip to Abbeville and the theater company talent was quite remarkable. We enjoyed a fun musical with great vocals and a live band. This production trended to the "ham it up" side of theater, but was great fun for the audience.

“One of many attractions in Abbeville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

this is a beautiful small town with many historical attractions, the Opera House is one. a step back in time. Take a walking tour of the town and stop by the fine shops or a resturant along the way. a great day trip.

“Highlight of an Abbeville Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

If you are going to Abbeville, you should time your visit to include either a show at the Abbeville Opera, or one of the frequent festivals in the town square organized by the town and the Chamber of Commerce. It is a very photogenic little town, and the town fathers are very good at planning weekend events, focussing on the seasons. Take a look at the town website to find the next festival, like the Spring Festival in May, etc.
