McCelvey-stage

The McCelvey Center is the original site of the Yorkville Female Academy founded in 1852 and includes the 500-seat Lowry Family Theater. Noted for its remarkable acoustics, the historic theater has a lovely 1920s ambiance and hosts the annual Southern Sound Series and the Grand Ole McCelvey summer concert series. The mission of the Lowry Family Theater is to present the unique heritage of the Carolina Piedmont through the performing arts while maintaining a quality venue for community enrichment. McCelvey’s Jane Bratton Spratt reception room and the Lowry Theatre are available for special events rentals.
