The Sands Theater Center’s roots go back to 1981 with our youth division, Storybook Theater Company. Sands Theater Company soon followed with a mission to provide live community theater experiences.
In 2004, we changed our name to Sands Theater Center, Inc. and took over the restoration of the Athens Theatre. In January 2010, we moved from our former home at Cultural Arts Center to the Athens Theatre. We continue to evolve and change to meet the growing needs of our community. Storybook Theater was recently renamed Sands Youth Theater Company.
The Athens Theatre is the home to productions from the Sands Theater Company, Sands Youth Theater Company, the Athens Cultural and Independent Film Series as well as many professional touring acts and concerts. We have quickly become the “performing arts center” for DeLand and the surrounding communities.
