The historic Abbeville Opera House is celebrating its 112th season. Now under the leadership of the City of Abbeville, this wonderful old theatre will present an exciting season of variety acts, musicals, plays, comedians, singers, dancers and concerts - much the way it did when the doors first opened during the Golden Age of Vaudeville on October 10, 1908. In the first five years of its existence, Abbeville audiences enjoyed approximately 260 live performances on the magnificent 7500 square foot Opera House stage. Throughout the years, we have received many awards and much recognition. The Abbeville Opera House has twice received the South Carolina Governors Travel Award for Tourism and - as the Official State Theatre of South Carolina - we attract as many as 17,000 theatre patrons to our wonderful community each year. The historic Abbeville Opera House is located in Abbeville, South Carolina -- conveniently situated mid-way between New York City and Miami Beach. The theatre is generally considered to be the catalyst for the revitalization of our historic community filled with antique, gift and curio shops, restaurants, hotels and bed and breakfasts. We invite you to join us and welcome you to our beautiful turn-of-the-century theatre and to our wonderful community.

Get more enjoyment out of your theatre experience!5/4/2014
At The Abbeville Opera House, we are committed to giving you the very best theatre experience possible from the moment you walk through the door and that includes helping you make informed decisions about which productions to see with your children. Be sure to inquire at the box office if the play is family friendly. In consideration of our many adult patrons, we ask that you do not bring children under the age of six into the theatre - except for our Youth Theatre performances. We appreciate your understanding. “Get a babysitter. You’ll enjoy the show a whole lot more … and so will the people around you.”
