“The Nutcracker”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was so much fun but it was last year that we went.
Lots of children and familys as well as grownups on their own .
It was a wonderful production even though the theatre is a little small.

“Renovated old theatre, well done”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a 50s or 60s style venue for acts which puts you fairly close. I have seen several good performances at this venue and it was a pleasure with restaurants in walking distance down town. You have a nice meal and walk over to the show.

“Saenger Theatre; a piece of Pensacola history”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I grew up in Pensacola and have gone to the Saenger many times; intimate, recently renovated theatre; a beautiful piece of history restored. A draw for excellent entertainment both local and from afar.
