The Dillon County Theatre Board of Directors thanks the community for your continued support. It is because of you that the Theatre is able to bring live musical and dramatic works to our stage and enrich the culture of our county.
The 2018-2019 season was a wonderful year for the Dillon County Theatre. In addition to the season’s offerings, the Theatre was able to help sponsor the City of Dillon’s production of “Scrooge, A Christmas Carol” and hosted “Crossroads: Change in Rural America” a traveling Smithsonian Exhibit.
The Dillon County Theatre was also the recipient of a grant from the Fox Theatre Institute, which enabled it to replace and repair the air conditioning units, install a generator and sump pump to prevent storm damages, completely replace the carpet, paint the lobby, and repair and seal the exposed exterior wall. Thanks to this grant and your support, the Theatre is in a much-improved state to begin the 2019-2020 season.
The Dillon County Theatre is thrilled to be collaborating with Coastal Stage Productions of Ridgeville, S.C. and the Theater of the Republic from Conway, S.C. to bring productions to the stage.
