A cornerstone of Greenville’s historic West End district, this company makes its home in a converted textile warehouse. The nearly 40-year-old theater hosts 15 or more shows a year, including productions in the Warehouse’s Mainstage and “Extras” series as well as performances in the Upstate Shakespeare Festival at Falls Park, productions by resident theatre companies, and improv shows. Warehouse also runs an “Actors in Education” program.
The bill of fare at The Warehouse Theatre ranges from re-envisioned classics and popular hits to new works. The company is a mixture of emerging talents, local professionals and artists from around the country; among the works included in its representative 2010-2011 season are Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Sarah Ruhl’s The Clean House, and the all-time favorite cult musical The Rocky Horror Show.
