Welcome!

Welcome to the Annie Russell where we're celebrating our 86th year of bringing provocative and playful theatre to Central Florida audiences. We truly appreciate your support as we continue our mission of setting the stage for life.

Since the Annie Russell opened her doors, there have been so many changes in Central Florida, and there are now numerous venues in which you can spend your evenings. But there is something special about a theatre dedicated to nurturing and crafting the next generation of theatre makers. The Annie Russell provides us all a unique opportunity to foster, shape and celebrate the theatrical talent of tomorrow. Make yourself at home!
