Getting to Know Us

What is the Garden Theatre?
Located in the heart of historic downtown Winter Garden on Plant Street, the Garden Theatre is a nonprofit organization committed to enriching, engaging, and entertaining through creative experiences. The theatre, which reopened 2008, showcases an atmospheric theatre in a Mediterranean Revival-style venue. The Garden Theatre hosts live plays, concerts, movies, and more to the residents of and visitors to the city of Winter Garden. Our address is 160 W Plant St, Winter Garden, FL 34787.

How do I find out what’s currently playing or coming soon?
This website is the best place for up-to-date information on upcoming events. If an event is taking place at the Garden Theatre but is not listed on the site, it either means that it is not open to the public or is being ticketed by another organization renting the theatre. You can also find plenty of updates on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Do I need a reservation?
We recommend getting your tickets as soon as you’ve made the decision to attend an event. The Garden Theatre is an intimate venue with 295 seats, and some performances fill up quickly. If tickets are available the night of the show, they are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and seating may be limited. If you plan on attending at least seven events during our season, we recommend that you consider a subscription, and our helpful Box Office staff can assist you with selecting your seats.

What are my options for parking?
A free public parking garage located directly behind the Garden Theatre is available for use. The garage is located at 160 S Boyd St. with entrances on S. Lakeview Ave. and S. Boyd St. There is also limited street parking (including several handicap accessible spaces) available on Plant St. and surrounding side streets.

A Few House Rules

What should I wear to a performance?
We encourage you to wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Jeans and tennis shoes are perfectly acceptable, although some patrons prefer to dress more formally. When in doubt, business casual is always appropriate. Please remove your hat when entering the theatre.

When do doors open for seating?
Theatre doors will open for seating 30 minutes prior to the show.

Can I bring in outside food and drink? Do you offer concessions?
Limited concessions will be available before the show and during intermission. Outside food and drink are not permitted. Alcoholic beverages must be consumed in the Garden Theatre building and may not be brought out of the Theatre.

What is your latecomer seating policy?
Seating begins 30 minutes prior to curtain. For the safety of our performers and the benefit of fellow patrons, late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager and you may not be seated in your original seats. You will be admitted at intermission if there is not appropriate time prior to intermission. Plan to be comfortably in your seat prior to the beginning of the show; this will make your experience and the experience of those around you more enjoyable.

Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals

If you are attending a performance with a registered service animal, please let the Box Office know in advance to ensure you are seated in an area that will be most comfortable for you and your animal. . By law, the service animal must be under the control of its handler at all times. The Americans with Disabilities Act defines service animals as “dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.”

Garden Theatre is unable to welcome Emotional Support Animals or other animals that do not meet the criteria set forth by the ADA. Only registered service animals are permitted inside the Garden building.

Please click here to review ADA law regarding service animals.


Sensory Friendly Performances

Sensory friendly performances are for families that have members (both children and adults) with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and special needs.

Special modifications will be made for these performances, including reduced volume levels and modifications to lighting, haze, and other special effects.

Families are welcome to bring items (blankets, pillows, noise reducing headphones, snacks, etc.) to make their visit more comfortable.


American Sign Language Interpreted Performances

In partnership with Signing Shadows, Garden Theatre will present American Sign Language-interpreted performances throughout each season.
