Once again we were blown away by the totality of the productions at the Olney Theatre. Even though we have lived in Montgomery County, MD for over 50 years, we had never been to the theater. We've made up for that in the past two...More

This small venue really showcases some local talent and makes you feel like you are an integral part of the production. Really fun!

We saw this play on the Mulitz-Gudelsky stage/ a small intimate setting where we were kept spellbound by the astounding cast. Seasoned actors all and well-directed with a clever set. Well done all. Could not have guessed the end!

As a long-time fan, and attendee, of Olney Theatre, I'm happy to do my bit to spread the word. Their productions are consistently memorable. The most recent shows I saw were a beautifully-rendered version of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK with outstanding performances all around,...More

Wonderful show on the main stage and in the lab theater. Good website. Love the National Players shows in summers, both outdoors and in the historical theater. Something for everyone. We're lucky to have this theater nearby.

This is a great local theater that presents plays and musicals and alternative entertainment in a very professional manner and with superb actors, staging, and costumes. Even the orchestra does an amazing job for the musicals. Love having this gem so close to home here...More

I was given a gift of 2 orchestra center 2-row tickets to Mary Poppins as a birthday gift. The facility is nice and comfortable. The musical was fabulous. The concessions leave much to be desired.... staffing, offerings, pricing, mixed drink . Parking was very easy.

I took my mother to see A Christmas Carol in their smaller theatre. We lived the small venue. Very intimate (seats were quite comfortable as well) It was a single man act performed as Dickens wrote it and sometimes performed it himself. It was outstanding....More

“Spectacular” may well be one of the most abused adjectives in the English language, but it is a great fit for describing the spectacle of “Mary Poppins” at Olney Theater Center. Everything about the musical is truly mind-boggling: the stage sets, the acting, the music,...More

Don't know that I've sat in the front row there. The main stage has handicapped seats reached without going down any steps. They are on a level just about even with the stage. The seats are separate chairs. I like to sit... More

Thank you for your question. Both Orchestra and Mezzanine seats in the Mainstage theatre give you a great view of the stage (the last row of the Mezzanine is only 50 feet from the stage). For your question about first row... More
