I saw A Christmas Carol at this theater and the actors were really good. I was very impressed with the production. The theater itself is one of those old small auditoriums were you can feel like you are really able to be a part of the audience and not one of thousands of people in larger venues. I can't wait...

We took our family to see The Athens Theatre's production of "A Christmas Carol", and I must say that it was absolutely FABULOUS! From start to finish, this theatre companies production values were first rate. The Lighting, Sound, Scenery, etc... were just terrific! WOW! We cant wait to go back for their next production. What a HIT!

This classic drama of the redemption of one man's soul should not have been presented as a musical comedy--complete with a flamboyantly hammy Ghost of Christmas Present and his chorus line of dancing girls and a dwarf in the role of a female toddler who was ecstatically kissing and hugging her doll every time she was on stage. This was... More

It was an excellent production. The cast did a super job and it was really delightful. Perfect for all ages and really got you in the Christmas. Still some shows left; if you haven't seen it I would highly recommend going.

A great place to see a play. This historical theatre was first opened in 1922. It has since been restored. It's a small but very gorgeous venue. Additionally, there's plenty of free parking. We had seats up front, but really not a bad seat in the house. They have beer, wine, and soft drinks up front. We saw the Christmas... More

Gorgeous theatre, fun with quality entertainment. Not to be missed, meet Dolores, Ms. Athens. She'll be the one with the fun personality, crazy hair and hats. Seating in balcony feels like a blast from the past...

I thiught the play was mediocre, but i live the theater. It's beautifully done inside and has comfortable seats, great lighting and a good sound system. There's not a bad seat In the house. We have enjoyed every time we've gone, regardless of the play.

Spectacular musical in a wonderful old theater. Gomez, Morticia, Pugsly, Wednesday, Lurch, Grandmama, and Uncle Fester were all portrayed to perfection. The theater was comfortably intimate with the ambience of the era it was built. DeLand supports the Arts by keeping productions of all types in this landmark building.

We saw "The Adams Family" and had a wonderful time. It was our first time in this theater, and we are buying tickets for more productions. Everyone was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. It is a great historic theater where all seats are close to the stage, making it an intimate experience. Even kid friendly, the staff provided booster seats... More
