This regional, 285-seat theater offers a subscription season of music, comedy and drama, as well as independent film screenings, chamber music concerts, lectures and special art exhibitions throughout the year.

Recent travelers called this local theater "a hidden gem," praising the in-the-round seating and the quality of the productions. Many recommended arriving early to enjoy a drink before the show or visiting the nearby Playwright Irish Pub for a meal after the performance. Some visitors complained that the refreshment stand at the theater had problems processing credit card purchases. Others recommended arriving early to locate free street parking, rather than paying $5 at the lot next to the theater. 

Located in downtown Greenville on River Street, Centre Stage is within easy walking distance of Falls Park. In addition to free street parking in the neighborhood, patrons receive complimentary parking after 6 p.m. and on weekends at the First Citizens Bank and at the Agfa Corporation. Tickets are available online or at the box office. Check the website for event schedules and ticket prices.

Falls Park on the Reedy is a favorite of both locals and visitors alike. Located in the heart of downtown, the park features beautiful stonework, walking trails, waterfalls, picnic areas, lush gardens and public art installations, complemented by the graceful architecture of the Liberty Bridge. The two-acre Pedrick's Garden, which serves as the park's main entrance, honors a former community leader instrumental in the establishment of Falls Park. What's more, two eateries are located within the park: enjoy salads, sandwiches and Southern favorites at Mary's Restaurant at Falls Cottage or French fare at Passerelle Bistro.

Recent visitors said Falls Park is a popular place for families and pet lovers, noting that kids love watching the ducks and dogs enjoying the many walking trails. Many also noted the beautiful bridge and garden and some suggested bringing a picnic to enjoy this peaceful spot. Other reviewers enjoyed the park's two on-site restaurants, as well as its proximity to other popular downtown eateries.
