lake hartwell performing arts

From Opera to Dinner Theater, the performing arts encompass a wide range of disciplines and hundreds of years of history. You can immerse yourself in the traditions and culture of the theater and find yourself swept away by the passion of the performers and the strength of the story and music. If you don’t think that the performing arts are for you, then we cordially invite you to change your mind at any of our wonderful venues.
