We host visiting performers, world-class musicians, vocalists, artists, dancers, comedians and more. Our facilities include a 349-seat main stage house and a smaller black box venue for youth and experimental theater. We are also home to the Art League of Hilton Head and Is. School Council for the Arts. Proudly a Kennedy Center partner, we are a center of learning, featuring year-round workshops for all ages, field trips and summer camps. And we are an arts community, taking our offerings to the world as we invite the world to us. We hope to welcome you soon!

Mary Poppins is $49.00 for Adults and $35.00 for children. So, for my 6 year old and me to see a matinee is $84.00! That is outrageous! Too bad we won't be able to see it my little one was so looking forward to it.More

We went to see Inherit the Wind yesterday. Great play performed by some outstanding professionals. The theater has some excellent presentations and is well worth a visit if you are in the Hilton Head area.

Think Inherit the Wind is a story of a bygone era, think again. It's still poignant today. It's a drama with great humor and songs. But with a lesson that's still valid today.

Haven't been to a show in years. Loved the Xanadu performance! The cast were super! The theater has an attached art gallery which was a bonus, because we were very early.
