Theater & Theater Venues

We have magic waiting for you behind our curtains.

Even after the arrival of movies and television, there is still a sort of magic that comes from watching live acting and seeing a story come alive right before your very eyes. Spend an evening in one of Charleston’s theaters and you’ll be mesmerized from the moment the curtain opens until curtain call.
