This performing arts center in the heart of downtown Greenville offers a 2,100-seat concert venue, a 400-seat theater and an outdoor amphitheater. In addition to presenting Broadway shows, comedy, dance and a variety of musical performances, the Peace Center is home to the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, the Greenville Chorale, two ballet companies and the South Carolina Children's Theater.

Recent visitors called this "an exceptional venue," noting that even upper level seats offer a great view. Many also praised the attentive service from the theater's staff and said they were surprised to find such a quality venue in a city the size of Greenville. Most reviewers found the prices reasonable and the proximity to downtown restaurants a plus, but noted that parking was difficult. 

The Peace Center is located downtown on the corner of Main and Broad Streets, within walking distance of several popular hotels and restaurants. Some free street parking is available and there are several city-owned parking garages and lots in the downtown area. Check the website for scheduled events and ticket prices.
