About Theatre

Located in the heart of downtown Athens, The Classic Center Theatre is northeast Georgia's premier performing arts venue. This 2090-seat masterpiece is a perfect combination of big-city polish and small town charm, hosting a variety of events, including Broadway, comedy, concerts and community events.

Community Events


More than just a performing arts space, The Classic Center Theatre is home to a myriad of community events including church services, meetings, community fundraising events and the extremely popular Athens Symphony Concerts.

Show Collaboration


The crown jewel in the annual entertainment lineup at The Classic Center Theatre in Downtown Athens is our Broadway Entertainment Series. The Theatre in recent years has partnered with the University of Georgia Performing Arts Center to co-present shows. This collaboration has enabled the Athens community to enjoy exceptional performances by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Blue Man Group, Tony Bennett and many more of the entertainment world's brightest stars.

School Programs


We also continue to serve the youth of northeast Georgia each year with a production of a special children's show for school groups.
