For the last 31 years, the South Carolina Children’s Theatre has impacted the lives of children and families throughout the state through theater, educational classes and workshops, and innovative outreach initiatives.
Traysie Amick discovered the allure of theater when her mother took her to a production when she was in elementary school. Now as the South Carolina Children’s Theatre’s principal teaching artist, she is introducing hundreds of Greenville-area children to the world of theater.
When it comes to Christmas-related performances, actor Lee O. Smith may be the most qualified to star as the title character in the South Carolina Children’s Theatre’s production of “Santa Claus: A New Musical.” Not only has he donned the red cap and shiny boots of Kris Kringle before, but he also may just have the holiday equivalent of a hat trick.
Artisphere, ranked one of the top fine arts shows in the country, poured money into artists’ pockets and Greenville’s economy. In 2017, the festival broke all previous records for economic impact, attendance and sales.
