      Smiling faces beautiful places. This is the motto of the state of South Carolina to the case of the Abbeville Opera House this couldn’t be more true. You’re instantly greeted with architecture fit for a European theater. What exactly does this entail? By this I mean you see you see columns with vines carved into them incasing the front door frame.

      Upon opening the massive white front doors you’re greeted with a simple lobby. Although it is simple is very elegant. You then on the right

      see the box office.

      The staff here is very helpful. The theater opens for seating about an hour before the show. When you go down the stairs into the theater you are greeted by ushers who are also very helpful.

      You see a cast board and then to either side you walk into the theatre! Wow what a place! There are three floors of seating. Only two of which are still in service. However boxes line all three floors as well.

      Only the first floor boxes ...

      • are used for seating however. The view is not that great from the second. However the view from the balcony is great.

        The theater as obviously had much time put into it, since it was built. This is proven by the interior architecture. This is a really beautiful theater.

        That seats about 450. And is topped off by a great big red curtain. The shows are just as great as the theater and service itself! All local actors and actresses but you would never know it.

        I have never seen a bad show here. The only downfall the restrooms are kind of small. So it’s best advised to use the restroom before and after the show.

        Definitely don’t use the restroom during intermission! Light concessions are served. Don’t go expecting popcorn or fountain drinks! The concessions are also reasonably priced. From the moment you walk into this theater to the moment you leave your amazed by the smiling faces and beautiful places! Visit as soon and as often as often as you can!
