A large group of us obtained tickets to the recent production. Great show although musical sound track could have been a little louder. As a performer myself, I don't know how the singers could hear it to sing. Otherwise, awesome local talent, great show!

Laura, We are so happy to hear you had a great experience at ACT. Thank you for taking the time to let us know. We are very proud of that production. Ebenezer was an original show and we were the first theatre in Florida to produce it. So, your compliments of the show and talent mean even more because of... More

This amazing town has some very talented people. Every show that we have seen there has been terrific, from the talent to the directing and, especially, the costumes! I highly recommend attending any and all of the shows!!

This is our first time to attend this theater. Pleasantly surprised. We saw the Christmas production of 'Ebenezer'. It was well done and the talent was wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Small theater, could acoustics & great talent. It may not be Broadway, but every bit as enjoyable!

If you like the various "takes" on Ebeneezer Scrooge, especially for Christmas time, you must take in the Amelia Community Theater (ACT) production of the live play. All accomplished with VERY talented local actors/actresses. A brilliant performance by all, seniors, adults, teens, and children. The play is a modern rendition of the story that is oftentimes funny and oftentimes current... More

WE enjoy season tickets to the Amelia community theater. Their latest play, "These Two Couples Went to Italy" was great. Well performed and directed and very funny. We look forward to all their productions. They have amazing talent for such a small island.

I have just completed watching a full season of shows at Amelia Community Theatre and enjoyed them all. I'm continually amazed at the talent on this island and that a volunteer organization can gather such stellar resources. If there isn't a play on the main stage, alternate months offer something in the more intimate Studio 209 right next door. A... More

Really surprised at how much we laughed last night and how good the actors were! I would suggest hiring a professional lighting person as that was very distracting and obviously overlooked. I would highly recommend and definitely go back!

Becky's New Car--total entertainment!!! We went with no expectations and left so pleased that we attended. Cynthia Riegler and the entire cast were energetic, professional and fun--with a bit of seriousness when appropriate. They stayed on stage and everyone could walk by and congratulate.

Nice presentation of Picnic by the Community Theater. Very small theater but comfortable seating. Tickets a little pricey for the venue. Limited facilities. Staff nice.
