As far as non-professional theater goes this is pretty good.

We've seen 3 shows here. It's a good deal for a city that has little else to offer. Too bad most of... read more

We had our first visit to Venice Theatre and thoroughly enjoyed it... "Elvis Tribute." Every seat gives a great view of stage and it's affordable. Perhaps it holds less than 500 people. We'll go back again.

I have been to many shows at Venice Theater. City parking lot across the street and parking in the rear is also available. No traffic jams getting out. If you are visiting Venice and enjoy live entertainment you have to try one of their shows.

Thoroughly enjoyed Beehive! Good performances, comfortable seating and the theatre was very clean. Also, tickets were reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

We recently spent some time in Venice and found this gem of a theatre. Clean, neat, and very organized playhouse. We saw "The Goldtones Doo-Wop" concert and "As Good As It Gets" play. Pleasant well-mannered clientele attended with us. No kicks on back of seat,...More

Loved the latest cabaret “Beehive”. Wonderful voices, well done show. Haven’t been to Venice Theater in years, but we will definitely go to other shows at the Pinkerton

Went to see "You Can't Take it With You" and had to leave at intermission. The show dragged with very weak performances from several of the players. Went to Lemon Bay Playhouse just a week before and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Venice show suffered from...More

When my friend Donna invited me to attend this play this past Thursday night, I'm so glad I could go. The stellar cast of 16 actors does such an awesome job. Ric Goodwin as Grandpa is fantastic, but seriously, the whole cast does such an...More

We have attended numerous shows and going again in a couple days. The theatre is very good and always entertaining. Most of the shows have the caliber of off broadway it is always a treat to attend.

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
