White Door Theater (White Door Theatro)
Tickets for theGreek Wedding Show are a significant investment by Greek standards, but include lashings of local wine plus authentic nibbles. You can sometimes buy tickets at the door during low season, but prebooking is essential during the busy high-summer season. Public transport on Santorini is limited at night, so packages that include transfers can make a lot of sense. They also let you enjoy the included wine without worrying about driving.
Things to Know Before You Go
White Door Theatro is a must for musical fans and anyone who loved the movieMy Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Most families will find the performances too late and too wine-fueled for children.
The show is usually outdoors. In case of rain, it will move indoors.
While meze and wine are included, White Door Theatro isn’t dinner theater. You’ll need to eat before the show.
Santorini is a challenging destination for travelers who use wheelchairs, and White Door Theatro is no exception.
How to Get There
White Door Theatro occupies a 200-year-old building in the heart of Fira town, two minutes’ walk from the main square, the cable car station, and the steps from the port. If you’re staying outside Fira, consider booking a package that includes transfers, as buses are infrequent after dark.
When to Get There
White Door Theatro operates May to October, with one showing per evening, late enough to allow you a full dinner beforehand. Particularly during high season (late June, July, and August), it’s well worth prebooking tickets online.
The Greek Wedding Show
Set in 1940s Greece, theGreek Wedding Show is White Door Theatro’s signature piece. The audience meets the Papadopoulos family as their guests for a traditional wedding, replete with song, folk dancing, plate smashing—and the family’s own story. Guests get to drink wine, eat snacks, and join in wedding rituals, including dance.
