A beautiful venue for plays, music, comedy and much more. Not a bad seat in the house. Plenty of good parking, beer and wine available at most shows. Sunday Unplugged provides free entertainment from local artists and the chance to see the great arts center.

We've been here twice to watch the Spartanburg Little Theater productions of "Of Mice and Men" and also "A Few Good Men." This is a wonderful place to view this type of theater event. We thoroughly enjoyed both productions, the seating, and the entry/reception area.
