Stroll down memory lane as four lifelong friends sing about about love, life, and changing times at their Springfield High 20th Reunion. The Marvelous Wonderettes perform the greatest girl-group hits of the '60s and '70s such as "I Will Survive," "You're No Good," "Band of Gold," and many other chart-topping hits from The Supremes to The Doobie Brothers.
Heartwarming, homespun, and hopeful, The Spitfire Grill is a folk musical in the Rodgers and Hammerstein tradition about second chances, starting over, and mending what’s broken. We’re dishing up a blue plate special of absolution and apple pie.
They are women, hear them roar! Calendar Girls is a poignant comedy about posing nude for a good cause. Based on the 2003 film of the same name and inspired by a true story, these ladies raise funds while raising eyebrows.

Arts environments require risk, courage, vulnerability, and investment of our physical, emotional and intellectual selves.
Venice Theatre seeks to nurture spaces with strong safety nets that support that ethos without compromising a visceral and authentic experience for artists and audiences.
We believe that even in the absence of high-risk material, having pathways for response to unsafe conditions and harassment help to maintain the integrity of the work, its participants, and the organization.
House Rules will be provided at first rehearsal and must be read and signed. Full Venice Theatre Operating Standards will also be available.
