After a six-month pandemic-induced hiatus of live performances at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, the organization is once again raising the curtain – and presenting nine separate acts throughout November and December. Most of the shows are geared toward families during the holiday season.

Over the past months, in addition to providing virtual content, the Arts Center has been readying the facility for patrons’ return. Among those measures are enhanced CDC-approved and EPA-registered sanitation regimens with industrial-strength disinfectant that is safe for all surfaces.

Further, after each performance, the Arts Center clean team will be sanitizing the theater and lobby using a safe, state of the art ULF disinfecting fogging system. The full scope of the measures taken can be found at

With these and other safety measures in place, world-class presenting acts will soon light up the stage, including American Idol winner Candice Glover and the Voices of El Shaddai (Nov. 7), Black Jacket Symphony’s Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (Nov. 14), Comedian Leanne Morgan (Nov. 18), The Harlem Quartet (Nov. 23), Mentalists Antonina & David (Dec. 1), Christmas with the Celts (Dec. 6), Comedian Henry Cho (Dec. 10), A Broadway Christmas (Dec. 13), and A Carpenters Christmas (Dec. 21).

Also, the holiday season kick-off tradition continues with the Town’s Official Tree Lighting to be held outside at the Arts Center from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 21. The free event, limited to 250 patrons, will be held in the Arts Center parking lot, chalked for social distancing, with performances by Lowcountry Jam, Bluffton School of Dance, and others, culminating in the official lighting of the tree at dusk.

Each of the nine presenting shows have two performances per date, but a government-mandated 50% occupancy limit means fewer seats and less availability, so patrons are encouraged to get their tickets quickly.
