This theater has been in downtown Eustis forever. Great place but it is so hot in there I almost passed out. I felt claustrophobic sitting in the corner of the row. We very much enjoyed the play but it was overshadowed by being so uncomfortable.

Step back in time and enjoy first rate acting and great shows. My children were members of the Childrens Theater back in the 1990's. Great experience. Beautiful old theater.
