I attend The Christmas Carol there at Christmas. It's an intimate, old timey, fun venue, which makes the actors very accessible to the audience. A great space for performances, although they can be pricey.

After searching and calling many churches and other wedding venues, the Seney-Stovall Chapel was one of the best locations for the price I found in getting married in Athens. For $625, you got 4 hours on Friday and 5 hours on Sunday. I was stunned...More
