In town to see Balsam Range- great theater! Don't think there's a bad seat in the house! Old elementary school from the 1930's that's been very nicely redone. Great sound system, good lay out with nice area for concessions. Not a lot of parking spots but adequate with street parking.

We have seen several shows and they were great! There isn't a bad seat in the venue. The people that volunteer are wonderful. The place is very clean and well kept. This place is a gem and Walhalla should be proud. We drive from Simpsonville SC to attend their concerts!

The venue itself is old but still somewhat nice. As far as drinks and refreshments they are EXTREMELY LIMITED and do not offer anything but water that has chemicals that raise your Blood Pressure (read the bottle), cheap wines that you over pay for and the pours are small for the prices, and a few sodas. They do not have ice for their sodas and at best are barely chilled. They don't serve anything diet but Diet Coke and for people who can't have soda, this isn't good. I went in with my Diet Cranberry Juice that they don't offer and there no alcoholic in it and was accosted and treated so very rude by the so called Manager. I purchased over $1,000.00 in tickets and they will not refund tickets per an email I received. Please see what I received.

So, they won't allow anyone to bring in an outside NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINK that person can have that they do not sale there but they were letting people bring in outside Jack Daniels as what witnessed by several people in our group and the group behind us. The so called manager is rude and refuses to listen to anyone. There is no where to dance in this venue. The venue always appears smoky to the eye. There are so many more venues around that are much nicer and are cleaner and that have much better refreshments and all the groups that Walhalla has booked are booked at one or another of these other amazing venues. I will NOT be wasting my money on this venue ever again and neither will my friends or family.

A small town theater in a remodeled high school auditorium, this place has great acoustics and features some prominent artists as well as other entertainment.

This is an awesome little venue for up close and personal concerts! Located in an old school (I think🤔) They have a small concession area and serve beer, wine and soft drinks. Very very nice volunteers take good care of you!

We are glad you had a great experience at the WPAC! We appreciate your support. Yes, this was an old school, that was saved by a great group of folks back in the 1990's and renovated and restored an opened in 2003. Our volunteers are one of the greatest assets we have and do a fantastic job as we only have 2 fulltime employees. We are a 501c3 non-profit and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thanks again for supporting live music and the WPAC.
