AMAZING SHOW
Jul 2021
I loved the unique setting of the theatre. They had proper spacing but still felt like a family setting. The show was amazing

Always the best. Never a disappointment. We are so lucky to have such a great venue and talented performers. We buy season tickets since it opened.

Dynamite Theater
Jul 2021
The theater is old and small but is just as good as a theater on Broadway. The performance of the show we saw was as good as what one would see on Broadway or at a performing arts center. I would highly recommend you experience this wonderful theater.

Nostalgic and Fun
May 2021
The venue is beautiful, unique, and a great feeling of small town charm. The talent hired cast in the shows are top notch and the staff is really nice and friendly.

The COVID precautions taken, like limited and spaced seating, masks, ticketless check-in, etc. was very well done.

I highly recommend visiting the Garden Theatre to anyone wanting to experience not just a great show, but also the charm of a small revitalized Florida Downtown.

Great location and wonderful performance
Mar 2021 • Couples
The theatre is situated downtown with lots going on so it’s perfect for dinner and theatre night. The staff is very friendly, the set was nicely done, and the performance- we saw Raisin In the Sun - was excellent. The actors wore masks and yet did a great job conveying emotion and energy. I can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful Productions at Garden Theatre
Sep 2020
Garden Theatre is a wonderful, small theatre that delivers broadway-worthy performances! I am rarely disappointed in a production here. I was so happy to be able to attend a LIVE theatre event again after theaters were closed down due to COVID-19. Garden Theatre had many safety protocols in place to protect the cast and patrons, yet they didn't detract from the quality of the production. If you're craving live theatre again, be sure to check out Garden Theatre!

Wonderful “Small Town” Theater
Mar 2020
I can’t say that every show at the Garden Theater is great (your personal preference for entertainment may be different from mine) but I will say that the theater and organization are great. I’m from another state but I visit Winter Garden every couple of years. Whenever I plan a visit, the first thing I do is check if anything is playing at the Garden Theater. It is a small, restored building and you get a very personal experience. I have always found the staff to be friendly and the place very clean. It’s not like being in a huge, big city venue. I am always amazed with what they are able to do with the plays they perform as far as scenery & special effects. Very professional. If you are in the area, check what is happening. It’s worth the effort.

Ben Hur comedy epic

Went to the Garden Theatre Friday night to so Ben Hur. What a fantastic fun time. If you like Monty Python in any way, you have to go see this show. Very entertaining.

Great local theater

We do adult night out and have dinner and catch a play from time to time. Always a good time and there are no bad seats. Love to support local talent!

Take a day away from the parks and see a play at the Garden Theatre
Feb 2020 • Friends
Please don’t think that the ONLY thing to do in Central Florida is to go to theme parks... or, for that matter, discount shopping malls. Take time to explore the area and discover other entertainment options and other cities. A great place to begin is Winter Garden and the Garden Theatre. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon at a musical production. Excellent cast and every seat was great. While you’re there, make sure to enjoy one of the main restaurants and cafes, as well as stroll around the town. There is a large parking garage, so don’t be concerned if street parking is full or unavailable.
