Theatre WP is a beautiful theme with large images and crisp typography. It blends an air of elegance with modernism in a way that makes the site feel premium.
This theme is truly well-designed for theatre companies. Instead of providing you with a bland set of templates and page components, it delivers on exactly the features you’ll need. Promote upcoming shows, include poster graphics and high-resolution images from pivotal scenes, and include a calendar including all future events.
On the demo site, the “Your Visit” page is especially practical. It includes all of the theatre’s contact info, a Google Maps embed of the location, notes on how to get to the theater from various modes of transportation, and ticketing info. When it comes to customization, Theatre WP doesn’t disappoint.
This theme has all the standard customization settings you’d expect: custom colors, social profile buttons, fonts, etc. It also includes some awesome bundled plugins like Slider Revolution and Visual Composer. These plugins let you design your own animated sliders and create new page templates with drag-and-drop tools.
The responsive Theater theme has a simple and classic design that suits theater companies perfectly. It emphasizes your shows and ticket sales as it should since that’s the heart of your business!
One thing that sets this theme apart is that you can sell tickets with it. While you may want to direct visitors to a site like TicketLeap, it’s nice to have the option to sell directly from your site. With WooCommerce integration, you can even open a small eCommerce shop on your site to sell T-shirts and other merchandise.
Theater also integrates with the Events Calendar plugin. This lets you create a simple layout of upcoming shows and link to the event page for more details. Add to this the dozens of shortcodes, portfolio styles, and blog layouts and Theater is an amazingly customizable WordPress theme. Use it for an opera, art events, ballet, comedy show, or any other theatre performance website.
If you want a theme with a clean style and unique layouts, you need to check out Classico. Scrolling through the homepage you’ll quickly discover the creating design and smooth animations of this theatre theme.
Classico comes with a page builder which lets you make your own templates with a simple drag-and-drop editor. If you like the demo site’s homepage that’s great, but know that you can totally customize it with the page builder. In fact, you can create as many custom pages as you’d like.
This theater WP theme includes an events calendar that is designed to look like a traditional calendar. Visitors can pick an upcoming day and reserve a seat or table at your venue using this feature. It’s also easy to add image galleries and portfolio pages to your site as well as run an active blog to promote your shows.
Theatre is a simple theme for blogs and websites about entertainment and theater. While it’s an easy and natural fit for a blog, it can work well for a basic business website too.
When creating new pages, you’ll have access to the 80+ shortcodes included in Theatre. These let you add multiple columns to the page, include buttons, videos, and all sorts of dynamic site elements. These tools allow you to create more complex pages that you can use to sell tickets and advertise upcoming shows.
Theatre provides you with precise controls for modifying the layout and adjusting the typography on the site. That includes modifying the font sizes and typefaces used. There are also eight post formats which allow you to publish videos, image galleries, and more on your blog just like regular posts. Lastly, Theatre is WPML compatible, so it’s a great choice for a multilingual website.
Theater Blog is a clean premium theme for blogs about theater and entertainment news. It has some creative designs that will make it stand out from other more basic websites. While it advertises itself as a blog theme, it would work well for an online magazine too.
The customization tools you’ll find in Theater Blog are very similar to the Theatre theme listed here. That means it has all the standard personalization options like custom colors, fonts, and various sidebar layouts.
If you check out the homepage design, you’ll see that this theme’s capabilities can extend beyond a simple blog. There is enough variety to promote events with templates and even sell tickets using the template provided. That said, it’s a clear winner if you want to start a theater blog.
Theatre WP is my number one pick because it has a ton of features, bundled plugins, and a professional design that visitors will appreciate. That said, Theater is also a great theme and comes in a close second.
If you want something a little more creative, Classico is another excellent theme. It’s not quite as robust as some other themes listed here, but it’s got a decent feature set and a nice design.
Both Theatre and Theater Blog are much simpler themes. If you want to create a simple website with a few pages, these may be the best themes to consider. In addition, if you are more concerned with blogging or post content for social media then these templates will be a natural fit.
