Where can I park?
Unfortunately, Centre Stage does not own any of the parking options around our downtown facility, but there’s plenty of spots around the theatre! Just a short walk across Academy Street, you’ll find free parking at the AGFA building after 6pm. Other paid parking lots (generally $5-$10) include County Bank directly next to Centre Stage, RiversEdge (the only handicapped accessible lot), and River Street Garage directly across from us!

Can I get a refund/exchange my tickets?
There are no refunds or returns. Exchange fees may be applied.

When is show time?
Main Stage shows begin at 8pm Thursdays through Saturdays, Saturday matinees begin at 2pm, and Sunday matinees begin at 3pm. The Prisma Health Fringe Series shows that perform on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings begin at 7pm. Special Event performance times vary, so be sure to check the event information on our website and social media pages to get the most up-to-date information.

Any good restaurants around the theatre?
We are lucky to be in the heart of Downtown Greenville and surrounded by some of the best food in the nation! Visit our friends next door at Limoncello, serving authentic Italian fare. If you’re in the mood for an upscale evening, very nearby are Limoncello, Rick Erwin’s Nantucket Seafood Restaurant, The Lazy Goat, Hall’s Chophouse, Soby’s, The Nose Dive, Nantucket Seafood Restaurant, and Larkin’s on the River. Looking for a great view? Head to Up On The Roof located at the top of the Embassy Suites right across the bridge! Greenville has no shortage of good places to eat, but make sure you give yourself plenty of time. Be sure to tell your server that you have theatre tickets for a specific time. They will take good care of you!

How many seats do you have?  Which are the best?
Centre Stage has 285 seats, and every single one of them provides a wonderful view, regardless of where you sit! With a historic thrust stage, and fantastic surround stadium seating, our actors perform to all three sides of the audience, and with such an exceptional intimate setting, you feel connected to the story at all times.

Can I snap some pictures or video during the show?
Sorry, absolutely no cell phone pictures or video taping is allowed during performances. This is according to our contracts with the licensing companies for each production.

How does student rush work?
We offer student rush tickets the night of any performance for any remaining seats (including main gallery); $15 for a non-musical performance / $20 for a musical performance. Students must come to the box office with student ID. One ticket per student ID!

Can I use all of my season membership admissions for one show?
Our Season is designed to give you variety, and the best way to experience all Centre Stage has to offer is to spread your tickets out and see as many shows as possible over the course of the Season. With the Extreme Flex Pass being offered with this year’s membership packages, you do have the ability to use your tickets however you’d like as long as Mainstage tickets are used for Mainstage shows and Fringe tickets are used for Fringe shows!

“The Color Purple” was a joyful theatrical experience brought to life by an incredibly talented local cast! It made me laugh, cry, dance, sing and cheer what a triumph! Well done Centre Stage!”

- Rhonda Rawlings

"I just want to give a heartfelt thank you to this amazing staff!! I attended the final show of the Color Purple on 6/5/22. It was my first time attending a show at this venue so I was unaware of the seating & had a panic attack because of my anxiety. The staff was there to assist me & changed my seating for me & my Mother. I'm so grateful for them!! I got to sit in the front row & enjoy the AMAZING show! They were so helpful & I'm thankful for them!! May God please continue to bless this business & staff!!"

"I forgot how much I LOVED a small community theatre until last night when we went to see 9 to 5 at Centre Stage. I saw 9 to 5 on Broadway about 15 years ago and honestly enjoyed the show at Centre Stage more. The layout is phenomenal. There isn't a bad seat in the house. We will definitely be back!"

"Wonderful intimate experience of professional players . We love the venue. A great date night adventure; dinner and take in a show. Short walk from Main Street."

"The cast of The Color Purple production delivered an amazing performance! The experience was so emotionally moving and captivating that we saw the production a second time! Awesome job Centre Stage, cast, and staff!"
