Greenville is an artsy town. In addition to dance, artwork in public places, and live music, we also have a robust theatre scene. Every theatre in town has its own unique flair, so put down your scripts and let’s take a tour of Greenville’s theatres.

Peace Center | 300 S. Main St.

In addition to blockbuster Broadway hits, the Peace Center offers comedy, live music, and speakers on different topics. This is your one stop shop to live an NYC life in Greenville.

Centre Stage | 501 River St.

Known for producing shows in thrust (read: the audience is on three sides of the stage as opposed to just one), Centre Stage puts on a variety of shows like musicals, straight plays, and comedies. It also has a Fringe series, which highlights some lesser produced works.

Warehouse Theatre | 37 Augusta St.

Warehouse’s motto is “Not Your Average Regional Theatre.” Putting on shows that truly make the audience think, laugh, cry, and maybe feel a bit uncomfortable, this theatre pushes boundaries in the best way possible.

Greenville Theatre | 444 College St.

As the oldest and largest theatre in the City, Greenville Theatre is known for its larger than life productions. Check out this 3D rendering to get a feel for the size. Although it typically sticks to musical classics, this theatre has been known to shake it up with a darker or edgier production.

Cafe and Then Some | 101 College St.

As Greenville’s only comedy dinner theatre, Cafe and Then Some focuses on fun above all. Creating quality productions that are typically locally focused, you can enjoy a loving roast of your hometown, and also enjoy a lovely roast (if roast is on the menu).

South Carolina Children’s Theatre | 153 Augusta St.

Kids are the priority, but parents will want to come too. In addition to theatre camps and classes, SCCT puts on a mainstage season every year with both kids and adults in the cast. Most shows are for kids of all ages, but some have an age recommendation.

GLOW Lyric Theatre | Various performance spaces

GLOW is Greenville’s opera theatre, and it makes us want to sing. Producing three shows a summer, you can expect to find classic operatic pieces, but also more contemporary shows that “respond to the social and political climate.”

SC New Play Festival | Various performance spaces

Taking place over four days each year, this festival showcases new plays and musicals, written by folks from all across the country. Pro tip: Don’t miss the yearly Broadway Cabaret performance.

If you’ve ever been in a play, we want proof. Send us your show pictures.
