Upstate Live Theater Returns In October

Easley’s Foothills Playhouse and The Mauldin Cultural Center will reopen its doors for live indoor performances this October.

The Upstate’s live theaters have been closed for seven months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In early August, Governor Henry MacMaster lifted restrictions on indoor performances allowing theater companies to stage shows again with restrictions following COVID-19 health protocols.

The two theaters can operate at only 50 percent capacity to ensure physical distancing in the audience. Theatergoers will be required to wear masks and temperatures are taken at the door. The Mauldin Cultural Center is asking patrons to purchase tickets online or by phone. 

Both theaters have taken precautions as they’ve prepared to reopen. Easley’s Foothills Playhouse performers have been wearing masks at rehearsals while The Mauldin Cultural Center conducted auditions online and rehearsals have been held both in-person and digitally.

Below are the schedules and the details of the shows:
