Enjoying Live Theatre in Venice

The Venice Theatre provides an option for those living in and around Sarasota to enjoy concerts, performances and many other types of shows. The theatre was started back in the 1950s and quickly became a very popular place to enjoy a show.

In 2000, the theatre underwent a four-phase renovation costing over $2 million. This renovation brought the facility up to the A.D.A. standards and the MainStage now seats 432 and Stage II seats 90. The facility also contains many classrooms, rehearsal stages and the renovation included an equipment upgrade, as well.
