I've attended plays here most of my life. I've also performed here when I was 7 years old. The historic auditorium is amazing. The building itself is an amazing place.

A great place to experience a concert or play. Small but nicely appointed and comfortable. Good programs to enjoy and not too expensive. The BEST part is you don't have to fight traffic like you do going to Charlotte!

My dad went to school here back when it was a school. My grandfather did as well. Historically it was a women's college.

This place is a great venue for plays, concerts, etc. The age of the building offers so much character. I only wish there were more activities held there.

Very dated but satisfies a desire to research our past. Hard to believe the expert workmanship that went into this building's construction so many years ago. An enjoyable visit back in time.
