The Warehouse Theatre is celebrating 45 years in Greenville with a season roster that spans work by everyone from Tennessee Williams to a writer for Orange Is the New Black.

Greenville’s “alternative” theatre has called a converted textile warehouse in the West End home since the 90s, and produces plays as a serious art form.

But they don’t just feature shows on the Main Stage – Warehouse is behind the Upstate Shakespeare Festival at Falls Park, This Wooden O Education Program, Applied Theatre Program + Educational Shakespeare Tour.
