When it comes to attending and experiencing theater shows in Orlando, visitors to the area will most likely think of Disney World and it’s large-scale production stage shows like Finding Nemo at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Beauty and the Beast at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or the dinner shows located in Kissimmee and along International Drive.
Orlando locals will quickly think of the new Dr Phillips Performing Arts Center and the touring Broadway shows that visit the area in that venue. Families with young children will think of the Orlando Repertory Theatre that puts on several children’s shows throughout the year.
There is yet another major theatre group made up of rising actors and actresses in the UCF Theatre group at the University of Central Florida that puts on several big production performances throughout the year at a fraction of the costs of attending the theme parks or touring production shows with standard adult tickets costing $20, $18 for seniors, and $10 for students.
The 2015/2016 season for Theatre UCF will start on August 27th, 2015 with the opening of The Importance of Being Earnest and continues with upcoming performances featuring The Understudy, The Divine Sister, Hair, Man and Super Man in the fall of 2015 and performances of Spunk, Reeling, She Loves Me, and UCF Celebrates the Arts.
