We came to town to see our granddaughter perform in the Nutcracker. A fine facility for the performing arts. Checking the upcoming schedule it seems to get a great variety of performances. An excellent gem for Greenville!

My husband and I took our almost 21 year old daughter to The Peace Center to see Anastasia. The center was beautiful, it seemed as though every seat had a good view. Hope to visit again soon

This is one of the best places to go and see a show in the country! Great for all off broadway to a concert. Every seat is a good seat and the sound is better than some broadway theaters I have been in.

A very nice venue for musicals and plays. Almost all of the seating is good. It’s located in a beautiful part of downtown Greenville near The Reedy Falls.
