Intense. Intimate. Unexpected.

The Warehouse Theatre is a cultural cornerstone of Greenville's Historic West End District and home to at least six productions a year, as well as The Upstate Shakespeare Festival at Falls Park, This Wooden O Education Program, Applied Theatre Program, Educational Shakespeare Tour, and more. The Warehouse Theatre operates as a small professional theatre (SPT - Tier Three) employing Equity and Non-Equity actors.

In our award-winning converted textile warehouse, you can see theatre that you can't find anywhere else in the Upstate region—from re-envisioned classics to cutting-edge new plays. Yet, our role in this community is more than just stage productions. Free Forums held before each main stage production cover related topics and foster discussion, growth and collaboration within our community. Our shows, forums and educational programs are designed to challenge us individually and as a community.

Likewise, we also value the importance of childhood and youth education. Our partnership with 100 schools in South and North Carolina provide a wide array of workshops, masterclasses and residencies for students ranging from Kindergarten to 12th Grade.

The Warehouse Theatre stands out among the most elite professional theatres in the country, having received multiple accolades. We are:

  • One of only two theatres in S.C. to receive funds from The Shubert Foundation
  • Selected three times as Shakespeare in American Communities member
  • One of two S.C. theatres with an Actors’ Equity Association Agreement
  • A member of the S.C. Theatre Association


However, we can’t do any of this alone. Please support the work of The Warehouse Theatre. There are so many ways to get involved:

Our Mission

The Warehouse Theatre is a professional theatre organization dedicated to the concept of theatre as a serious art form; to high-quality, diverse and challenging productions; to the training of theatre professionals; to community outreach and education.

The Warehouse Theatre chooses plays that stretch the imagination of Upstate audiences, energize and excite the community with Intense, Intimate and Unexpected performances exploring and celebrating the complexities of our time. The Warehouse Theatre does this to encourage a spirit of adventure, and to develop a hunger for the visceral impact of theatre, in the mind, heart, and soul.
