Wonderful local theater
Mar 22, 2014 by: Godguy from Reston VA
This theater has three venues with very different characters which allows the center to tailor the venue to the production. They can do large Broadway type productions competently but really excel at new and small productions in their intimate setting. We are now traveling from Virginia regularly to see productions.
as good as many Broadway shows I've seen

Cast, costumes, choreography, directing - it was an incredible show! Our expectations were average, and we were blown away by the quality of the production and the acting and singing.
Outstanding regional theater!

My husband and I visit family in Olney in December,on a biannual basis. Whenever we are in town, one of the "must-dos" is to see a performance at the Olney Theater Center. The theater is housed in a lovely, well-appointed building, and the layout of the seating is such that there really is not a bad seat in the house! Parking is plentiful, and on-site. This venue puts on world-class productions! Last week, we saw "the King and I," which was just sensational! The costuming was especially beautiful, and, as always, the acting, singing, staging- all of it- was just superb! We have also seen "the Sound of Music" and "Annie" at this theater, and both productions were excellent!
Fantastic shows for all ages

This theater offers great options (i.e. musicals and plays) for new and seasoned fans of all ages. Great deals year-round (and great sales!), and have never gotten a bad seat. What a fun and wonderful community treasure!
Comfortable and affordable

My husband and I have seen a couple of shows here, today we saw The Nutcracker. The play was very good. The sounds was good, seating comfortable and price was fair at $35 a person. The seats are comfortable, however, you may want to bring a pillow for the kids to sit on so they can be high enough to see. The theater was a little stuffy at first, then air seemed to circulate and cool half an hour into the play. The play was two hours with a fifteen minute intermission. They ring a bell when it is time to go back to the theater. They sell soda, water, wine, chips during intermission. There is a restaurant across the street that we have eaten in once and was good. The only negative, is you have to park across the street for the play which is a negative on a cold day. They do allow you to drop off people at the door who have limited mobility.
