This theatre puts on a lot of very diverse plays, from adult to children's performances. Not a bad seat in the house due to the smaller size of each theater. I've seen many shows here and am always pleased with the shows and performances. Enjoy

We saw Billy Elliott and Crazy For You, both shows were very well done and we were surprised by the High level of talent for a small theater. Venice is very lucky to have a theater of this caliber in their back yard with many wonderful restaurants nearby to attend before the show. Makes for a wonderful evening.

For a small town, this theatre brings in big shows and good acting for a reasonable price. Also, there is not a bad seat in the whole theatre.

We went to see a John Denver themed show. I loved the intimacy of the theatre, the way all seats cost the same, moderate price point, ushers were so friendly, great variation of offerings, nice waiting area, bathrooms, snavks.

Went to see Sister Act with my girlfriends. This is always a great time and we do this quite often. The shows are great and very reasonably priced.
