The historic Abbeville Opera House's 37th Summer Theatre Season is now underway. We just closed our 106th Winter Season last month and our theatre is more popular now than ever before. 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.
