The historic Abbeville Opera House is bringing its 107th Winter Theatre Season to a close with two Tony Award winning productions: "The Fourposter" and "The Miracle Worker" - and our theatre is more popular now than ever before. The doors to this wonderful old theatre opened on October 10, 1908 and in the first five years of its existence, Abbeville audiences enjoyed approximately 260 live performances on the magnificent 7500 square foot Opera House stage. We have twice received the South Carolina Governors Travel Award for Tourism and each season - as the Official State Theatre of South Carolina - we attract over 17,000 theatre patrons to our wonderful community. The historic Abbeville Opera House is located in Abbeville, South Carolina -- conveniently situated mid-way between New York City and Miami Beach. The theatre maintains an outstanding company of talented performers, technicians and staff - presenting two exciting and challenging theatre seasons totaling over 36 weekends of live theatre a year. The Abbeville Opera House 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 turn-of-the-century theatre.

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.”
