Let’s Go……  Another great year of “BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE ARTS CENTER OF COASTAL CAROLINA”.  There is a backstage tour two times a year:  Christmas and Spring.  You will learn the history of the Arts Center, visit the costume room, meet the production manager, tour the building including the Black Box Theater and Production area. There is a fee of $35 per tour which includes a light lunch with Champagne.  The tours are limited to around 30 people. Open for new members.

On December 12, 2018, Back Stage Tour of ‘An American in Paris’.  We started in the beautiful Heritage room with a Champagne lite lunch at The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.  We heard from Kathleen Bateson, visited Jennifer Van Buskirk, Costume Designer, Brian Riley, Vice President of Production, Disney Studio, and the Black Box Theater.  A fun time was had by all.  Look for emails regarding our 2019 Spring ‘Back Stage Tour’ soon.
