This was a fun treat! Very impressed with the quality of production in such a small theatre. We were on the 3rd row and the actors were literally about 5 feet away from us! It was cool because the orchestra was actually behind the stage-allowing for us to be so close! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

We saw Spamalot at the theater and thought both the acting and the use of the space was fantastic. I highly recommend catching a performance here if you can.

I've attended multiple shows at this theater and the productions are always amazing. The sets are fantastic, acting is superb, I love it! You can preorder drinks before the show and they're ready to be picked up at intermission...no waiting in line! Facilities are clean, never had a problem here.

Every play we have seen here has been top-notch. Despite the name, they do offer plays/musicals that have NOT been written by Shakespeare :-) Check the website for discounted offers. Website also offers "parental advisory" which is very helpful whether you are taking younger folks or are just sensitive yourself. Bar and concessions offered before show and at intermission.

I have attended many plays here. Yesterday, I attended the annual open house. They had an exhibit of costumes and props from plays through the years. It was fascinating to see the elaborate embroidery on the costumes, and the innovative props.They had interesting demonstrations of lighting and sound, showing how they use the latest technology. The show about props and... More

We attended Orlando Shakespeare's presentation of "Henry V" this March. It was EXCELLENT. The theater is small and intimate-the best kind of venue for Shakespeare. The costumes were traditional as was the staging, and all was excellently done. Tho Im not a huge fan of women taking men's roles in theater-and this rendition did a little of that-it was a... More

We saw Elephant Man. It was a very small theater and the actors and actresses did an amazing job. Friends of our gave us the tickets and I went kicking and screaming all the way. I had seen the production on Broadway years ago and from what I remembered it was depressing. These people were professional and could have easily... More
