First opening in 1935, the Garden Theatre has evolved with the times while still keeping true to its original theatrical essence. Reopened in 2008, it has since offered various forms of education, theatre, dance and more. Garden Theatre is a multi-faceted facility, beginning first as a vintage movie theatre before becoming a modern atmospheric theatre. Below is a video welcoming general audiences to the Garden Theatre, offering insight into what it is like and what to expect.
What sets the Garden Theatre apart is its emphasis on community. Like no other theatre in the region, it is highly focused on bringing art and culture to the masses. For children, they offer weekly youth classes, occurring Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. This gives the local youth a safe place in an exploratory environment what it means to be an actor or actress. For adults, they also offer a range of courses, emphasizing real-world applications. Garden Theatre wants to help everyone be the best they can be and thrive in the world of drama. The following video showcases the 2018-2019 season, reviewing all that has transpired at the Garden Theatre.
This Mediterranean-styled theatre has much to offer. With classes for all ages, a summer camp, a spring break trip, and a giant catalog of upcoming productions, the Garden Theatre stands as a pillar of Orlando's dramatic arts scene. The theatre presents on average 4-7 events every week, leading to over 450 events each season. Their selection includes movies, concerts, live plays and more.
