This was the funniest play I've ever seen in live theater! The two actors, Steve Costner and Michael Thompson portrayed 11 Characters each. I bought tickets for 4 and took my two daughters who were visiting for Christmas...we all laughed our heads off. The play was a work of art, the actors were genius, and the sets and lighting were...

Love this intimate theater! Always great performances. Easy to order tickets on line. Just saw "A Tuna Christmas" with Steve Costner and Michael Thompson who did an amazing job in 10 different roles each. It was so, so funny. Can understand why it was a sell out performance. Can't wait to see "Calendar Girls" in Feb. 2017.

Little theatre sold out frequently, but recommended. Setting really pulls you in to the performance.

If you count the years that they were Indian River Players, before the name change, this fantastic group has been entertaining audiences in Melbourne for well over fifty years. They have mounted just about all of the best plays that originated on Broadway, and in some cases, may have even made them better. Check the schedule by looking at their... More

The Melbourne Civic Theatre is a small, cozy theatre that makes for a great night out. There are no bad seats as the theatre is small and intimate. They have a snack bar, great staff, and the building is elegantly decorated. If you are looking for a fun night out in downtown Melbourne enjoy dinner at one of the fine... More

If you are looking for a refreshing night out in Melbourne I would recommend MCT. The actors do not disappoint and you receive a more intimate of a setting than most theaters in the area.

We've seen about 10 shows here. Some we've seen twice because they were just so enjoyable like Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol. The location is within a downtown shopping gallery. We've given up trying to park by the stores due to limited spaces on the weekends (shows are Fri-Sun except a little adjustment during Christmastime) so now we just park across... More

Small, intimate theater delivering cutting edge plays with very good local talent. Well organized and friendly, this venue offers an excellent thinking person's date night or evening with friends. Going solo? No worries, it won't be for long. Regular crowd is very friendly.

This was our first visit to the Melbourne Civic Theater. Upon entering there is a small lobby where you can sit and wait until it is time to be seated. They have a small concessions window where you can get a drink or even a small snack to enjoy while watching the show. A 50/50 raffle is called mid show... More
