WE went to see "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" the musical. Very good performance with excellent professional actors. The Facilities were excellent. Small intimate seating with plenty of leg room. Good Acoustics.

This was the second play my family and I have seen at the Arts Center. We saw 9 to 5 in 2014 and then this year we saw Dirty Rotten Scoundrels a couple of weeks ago. Both plays were excellent with great performances from the troop. It's a nice theater, all seats are the same price since there are no... More

"Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" was a wonderful show. The cast performed excellently and it was a big hit with the "full house" matinee on Sunday. Do not miss this show.

The Arts Center is a small theater where any seat is a good seat. The productions vary in terms of type of offerings and level of professionalism. The Peking Acrobats were exceptional, and the play "Inherit the Wind" was very well done. Some shows, such as "The Mousetrap," are just so-so in terms of quality of performances, but they are...

The production was "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and it was wonderful! Having seen the movie several times, my husband and I decided to see how this would be handled as a musical. The actors were all so talented, pleasing to the eye, and turning out a very professional production. The theater itself is very small and the acoustics are quite good.... More

Great to see such an icon of the Jazz world in such a small and well maintained setting. Really liked the front row balcony seats - great view. Volunteers were a mixed lot - some nice but there were a number who were not helpful or were downright rude to those they didn't know. There was a small bar for... More

Nothing amateur about this brilliant venue. America has amazing talent and it is always on stage here. Some shows absolutely brilliant like 'My Fair Lady', How to Suceed in Business', and 'The Drowsy Chaperone', but everything is well above par!

For less than half of a round of golf you can enjoy a lovely evening at the theater. This is a small venue so all seats s are wonderful. The theatre is very comfortable and mounts national productions. It is easily accessible from bus 278 and in Shelter Cove near the harbour so dinner before or after is a cinch.... More

Thanks so much, and you are right -- with a full house, the parking can be tight so the theater lobby bars offer "happy half hour" drink pricing until 7:30. Park early and enjoy a beverage in the theater lobby before the show!! More

Had two great visits during our Hilton Head Island holiday. This newer modern theatre is not huge and just the perfect size, more a intimate feeling with a full size stage. 1st class live entertainment of all sorts are offered from Broadway shows, plays, musicians, comedians, etc. First we saw Agatha Christies' "Mousetrap" on opening night. Interesting story line and... More
