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,...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...More

Frank's movie theatre is great. This is the page for the live theatre, though. Check us out for musicals, plays and live concerts. We also offer theatre classes for children, teens and adults.

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....More

We are so fortunate to have a First Class theater in our small town. A bit pricey at times. Not always easy to get tickets. Have seen some fun things here.

Saw Hair and it was very different from the original and I must say "change is good" Excellent cast and the music was wonderful. Very nice small theatre!
