South Carolina Children’s Theatre’s Arts & Education Center for Children
30 years after first opening the doors, South Carolina Children’s Theatre continues to grow right along with the children we serve and it is time to build a permanent home – one that can better support our mission of educating and stimulating the minds and imaginations of young people and their families.
All Under One Roof
In 2010, Josephine Cureton, a dear friend of the theatre, donated a parcel of land adjacent to our current home on Augusta Street. With that gift began an exciting journey to a new home. Our new headquarters will allow us to serve our audiences from one, central location and will allow us to support additional growth in future years.
