Greenville’s Centre Stage, started in 1983 is both a group and the amphitheater where they perform. The Amphitheater, which can hold a little under 300 people in it’s open aired benches, is a big part of the theatrical community and the rest of Greenville as a city. It works with groups such as the Greenville Symphony Orchestra in their Spotlight Chamber Music Series and with the many colleges and universities in the area by hosting classes at its location.
It’s refusal to compromise the high artistic standards that it has set for itself is one of the big selling points of this community theater. It has created several original works by the artist Doug McCoy, including A Diva Holiday, The Best of Boots and Kings of Country and Their Queens.
Tickets for shows at Centre Stage go for between $20-$35 dollars per ticket.
Centre Stage is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Ticket sales only pay for about half of the cost of producing the plays, so they are always looking for donations, which they need to continue to serve the community. If you are interested in seeing one of their shows or donating to Centre Stage, visit them at 501 River St. in Downtown Greenville.
