Located in the heart of Hilton Head Island, the award-winning regional Arts Center of Coastal Carolina is a showcase for professional performing and visual arts, as well as cultural festivals and educational outreach. Each year we produce five musicals or plays, from concept to curtain call, featuring outstanding direction, superb production design and talented performers. We host visiting performers, world-class musicians, vocalists, artists, dancers, comedians and more. Our facilities include a 349-seat main stage house and a smaller black box venue for youth and experimental theater. We are also home to the Art League of Hilton Head and Is. School Council for the Arts. Proudly a Kennedy Center partner, we are a center of learning, featuring year-round workshops for all ages, field trips and summer camps. And we are an arts community, taking our offerings to the world as we invite the world to us. We hope to welcome you soon!
