Whether you are a patron of the performing arts, a movie goer or you just enjoy live concerts, Winter Garden has something to offer you. Built in 1935, The Garden Theatre was purchased by the City of Winter Garden in 2002 and restored with the help of Winter Garden Heritage Foundation. A grand opening in February 2008 featured the City’s own Broadway Star of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ fame – Davis Gaines.
The ‘Wizard of Oz’ is currently on stage at the Theatre and runs until May 26. But the Theatre offers much, much more – Plays, Movies, Concerts, Summer Camps, Field Trips, Music Festivals, Starlite Film Festivals, Special and Community events and much more.
Located at 160 W Plant Street, the City describes its jewel as constructed in the Mediterranean Revival style with a Spanish tile roof. The interior is modeled after a Spanish Courtyard and possesses Romeo and Juliet balconies. The ceiling is a dark blue bejeweled with it’s own twinkling stars.
It has been said that a city is only as rich as it’s culture and performing arts and it’s theatre is the yardstick by which it is measured. If that is so, Winter Garden is full of riches but it’s wealth does not end there. It can also be found in its wonderful neighborhoods. You can share in this wealth when you make Winter Garden your home. Come home to Winter Garden, there is a place waiting for you!
