"Almost 30 years ago I walked into an audition as a young boy and came out cast as Jason in the original cast of Falsettos. I've been waiting for a production to come to our area and have to say, Venice Theatre's Falsettos is one of the best productions of the show that I've seen."
~ James Kuschner
"RAGTIME ... WOW...
I was captivated by the totality of the scene at the end of Act I - I had not experienced that rush of emotion in a long, long time. I just felt like I was somewhere else, not in Venice, not anywhere I had been before."
~ Nina Tufenkjian
"Rent is a killer musical! The talent, music and choreography were all astounding. The set and costume designs and lighting executions perfectly amplified the high energy and intensity that was exuded by every single cast member."
~ Kitty Leonowicz
"... I must say I've been completely 'blown away' by the shows I've seen this year and am especially impressed with the talent and professionalism of the young people ... I also want to recognize the stage crew and costume designers. The set for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was amazing and the sound effects were unreal. And costumes! - the designs and construction are so detailed and authentic even down to the buttons! ... Keep up the good work ... I'm looking foward to many more hours of enjoyment at the coming shows."
~ Betty Collier
"... it amazes me every time when I see so many people working in such harmony, each complimenting the work of the other. You all bring so much to the community in Venice ... Thank you all for what you do for us, kids and adults alike."
~ The Khan Family
“In the final analysis and after your presentation, it really became apparent to all of us what a 'jewel' we have in our midst. Under your direction and with your knowledge, experience and love of the theatre and the community, it is understandable why Venice Theatre is consistently rated as one of the finest community theatres in the country.”
~ Dick Brettle
"... the costumes were again excellent, the sets were excellent, and the cast couldn't have been better for the production ... Your normal productions are extraordinary ... but Scoundrels was even better."
~ Bill Racey
"...Four of us saw Run For Your Wife on Sunday afternoon and ejoyed it very much. What a riot! We laughed and laughed. 'Twas great! Thank you for a great show."
~ Gerturde Miegel
“My wife and I saw The Producers last night, and I have to agree with you that it is the BEST performance ever at the theatre. The choreography was FANTASTIC! I especially like the women dancing with the walkers...We’re tempted to go and see the play again.”
