About these ratings

This bright-pink Sanibel landmark started out as a one-room schoolhouse in 1896. Now, it’s the 90-seat BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater, a performance venue that welcomes Broadway shows, live music concerts and comedy acts. According to both locals and visitors, the "Schoolhouse Theater" is a treasure.

"The shows are always fabulous," gushes one TripAdvisor writer. "My family and I have been visiting Sanibel for six years and each time the show is fantastic. Always funny and the actors are so talented!"

Performance times vary, but the gift shop is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays in winter from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. Visit the Schoolhouse Theater's official website for more information on current performances and box office hours.
