Theatre Jacksonville is a wonderful community theater in general. The Little Mermaid, drawing from actors, dancers, singers and musicians in the community and from DASOTA, was particularly outstanding.

This is a general review of the theatre. We bought season tickets after seeing "Hairspray" a year ago. My son and his wife bought us tickets for Hairspray, and we thoroughly enjoyed the performance, and bought season tickets for this past season. We have really enjoyed the intimacy of the theatre, the quality of the small theatre actors, the experience... More

Pretty neat little theater for the experience of a old theater. They serve food at the concession stand which is located inside the theater and they have tables next to the seats to put your food and drink. The popcorn tastes like pre made popcorn and don't expect a THX movie theater. But the setting was nice.

This small theater, made up of volunteers from the community, was founded in 1919 and based in this same facility since the completion of the building (started in 1927) in 1938. The cast is always great and the venue is charming. The only issue with the theater itself, and I am not sure how to improve given the size, is... More

HAIRSPRAY has upbeat music, an interesting story, and great singers. The costumes added to the feeling you were in Baltimore in 1962. Race relations are at the heart of the show and Tracey, the heroine, makes it her mission to show how unfair it is not to let the black kids be part of the popular TV dance show. If... More

This is a well-run community theatre with a nice program of straight plays, musicals, and one acts. The surrounding neighborhood of San Marco is worth a visit all on its own - great restaurants for before or after the show.

Perfect little theatre! If you're short, make sure to get a seat towards the front. I saw hairspray here and it was magnificent. A completely volunteer cast but it didn't show. Go see a show here, or be in one!

My husband and I decided to do "something different" for our date night, so we saw "Figaro" at Theatre Jacksonville. The show and the actors/actresses were entertaining. We will definitely be back for an encore for another performance.

I'm a little on the older side and this is the first time I've been to a theatre since I was in high school This is a great venue and there isn't a bad seat in the place. That's the first time I've seen Les Miserables and I was engrossed the entire show. The price was reasonable and buying the... More

I like everything about Theatre Jax. The director is a dedicated professional and works tirelessly to provide quality stage productions, as well as raising support for the theater. The education department provides a terrific summer camp experience which has fanned the flames of many aspiring performers. There are workshops offered throughout the year for kids, teens, and adults. The location... More
