Reviewed 1 July 2013

Excellent actors, great location, good choice of plays. If you have time and you enjoy the theatre, definitely check out Theatre Downtown. It is a local institution (and great restaurants nearby!)

“Great little local theater”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Thetre Downtown is my favorite playhouse in the Orlando area. The venue is small and the stage is very close to the audience. Most seats provide a great view. They also choose to do fun and unusual plays, with varied themes. Pricing for tickets is affordable, approximately $20. You can buy beer, wine and snacks at the box office to take into the theater with you. Great location on Orange Avenue.

“Fun Theatre”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

We have done some acting in the past, so were excited to take in a show at the Theatre Downtown. The location is okay, but parking can become an issue on a night when a popular play is being performed.

Inside, the "reception" area is always nicely decorated. The upstairs area is welcoming and comfortable.

The stage itself is not set up like most theaters you may be familiar with. Instead, people are able to sit almost right on the actual "stage."

As there is no raised area, it will feel like you are in the play yourself! Depending on the show, the actors might actually 'make' you part of the show!

If you are expecting a polished, old-style night at the theater, this may not be the place for you. But if you are a modern theater-goer, or someone who just wants to have fun taking in an inexpensive, but still quality show at a unique venue, the Theatre Downtown will not disappoint.
