The recently updated Broadway Theater will open this summer in Myrtle Beach.
The theater will hold 370 seats and will be located along Broadway at the Beach across from The Simpsons in 4D. It was previously the home of the Charles Bach magic show.
Officials are hoping the renovations will elevate the downtown Myrtle Beach area.
According to Lauren Clever, Downtown Development Director, the theater will have a variety of uses. Clever said “Any kind of performance, whether it’s musical, drama, could be a rock concert, movies, could be really anything.”
Clever also described the restorations the theater is undergoing saying, “We’re going to restore them back to their original characteristics. They’ll look like they did back in the day when they were functioning and vibrant.”
The first show to grace the stage of the Broadway Theatre will be Le Grand Cirque, which is set to begin on May 20th. It will run through October.
