The theater itself is very nice, good size, seating and views. The shows pricing is very reasonable for a evenings entertainment. We went to see "SISTER ACT" and thoroughly enjoyed it. It looked like they offered a wide range of entertainment choices. I would recommend seating in the balcony since that is were I sat but check with someone on... More

This was our second visit this season. Both were excellent experiences. There are really no bad seats and the ticket prices are reasonable. The musical we saw was well-done. The performance was of the highest quality. Nothing beats the Capitol Steps for political satire. The show was sold out and the entire audience gave the cast several standing ovations.

We have visited Venice Theatre to see various shows when visiting the town. Saw 'Sister Act' last night. Always get a great professional show with great performers. Staff and volunteers give a friendly welcome. Definitely recommend booking tickets for a show.

As senior volunteers my husband and I were publicly humiliated by the director and stage manager of a play in the Pinkerton Theatre for being 10 minutes late for a practice. They were very sarcastic and rude to us while we could see the actors peering at us front behind the back stage curtains There are too many fun things... More

Venice Theatre's shows and missions are FAR ABOVE any community theatre around. They have great diversity in both their shows and educational offerings in the community. Their shows are fantastic!!! They have a main stage for large scale productions and a smaller, more intimate space that is used for everything from Shakespeare to cult classics! They also are home to... More

They started back around 1960 in an abandoned WWII airport building and are now an internationally recognized community theatre. Have seen many performances over the years, both on the Main Stage and in the Pinkerton Theater. Simply outstanding for a volunteer-driven community theater. Also, their summer youth programs and community outreach make Venice Theatre a priceless addition to our area.

The Venice Theatre is on of the reasons we purchased our retirement home in the City of Venice. The Cabaret Shows are always good and the Main Stage Presentations are as well. We have been going to the Theatre since 2006 and the productions just keep getting better and more professional. For such a small town to support a Theatre... More
