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

Recently attended a concert at the Venice Theatre and the night was perfect. Very intimate theatre with not a bad seat in the house including balcony. The staff was very pleasant, there was plenty of parking. We will be going back for sure. Highly recommend if you are visiting in the area and you would like to attend a live... More

My best friend treated me to an early Christmas present by taking me to see BILLIE ELLIOTT at Venice Theater. The lead role was played today by Carson Mashmeier, a 13 year old from Fort Myers who blew me away with his acting, voice, dancing, and just the fact that he had so much dialogue to learn!!!!!! He did an... More

Small local theatre with surprisingly well known names. Saw the Kingston Trio there twice. Local actors put on some pretty good shows. Also has visiting artists. Acoustics are good and seating is not to bad. Nice place to catch a local show.

The Venice Theater is truly a "Jewel" in Venice. The shows are spectacular, and the experience is very worthwhile. The prices are reasonable for Broadway shows that they put on. Dinner at Scamotz with gourmet Pizza and a salad makes the trip worthwhile, just across the street. So don't miss out on this little "Jewel" in Venice

Every show we have seen is of professional quality. It is a small venue so you have a clear view wherever you are seated

My wife and I bought some last minute tickets to see the Toxic Avenger. It was hilarious. We've been coming to Venice Theatre for some time now and have not seen a bad show. Is it broadway? No. On the other hand, it's not broadway. It's easy to access, easy to park, small, friendly, and there are no bad seats... More
