I was at the Hylton to see the "Carmina Burana and More!" performance. The first half was traditional ballet, and then a 20 minute intermission. The second half saw the orchestra joined by vocalists (disclaimer: my husband was singing in the choir so I may be a little biased) to accompany the modern dance performance. The site is beautiful and... More

I saw a wonderful Wizard of Oz play with the art of dance and knew some of the members including the young lady who played Dorothy.

Wife purchased tickets for her and the granddaughter to attend a Christmas play. Granddaughter could not attend so we called to upgrade the her ticket to an adult ticket and they would not refund, exchange nor upgrade. I do not understand why they would turn down more money for the same seat, but best wishes with your business mode.

Attended a Sunday afternon symphony performance. First noted plenty of FREE PARKING--not another $23 like the Kennedy Center but absolutely on par in atmosphere! Delightful performance with very good accoustics. A WONDERFUL PLACE to enjoy the Arts!! This would have definitly been 5 stars if it had a restaurant to enjoy before or after the performance. This is ABSOLUTELY one... More

Invited to a recital at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. First time in this venue. Opera style main hall seats over 1100 people. Smaller arena and a grand foyer are available for various events. Spacious balcony and entrance. Lots of staircases. Acoustics (my performance was vocalists) were pleasant in the first balcony. No knowledge of the floor or second balcony.... More

This is a delightful theater for viewing plays or other productions. The seating is great and you can hear the performers from any locations. The ticket prices are very inexpensive, $20 for an center cut seat. The theater offers a wide variety of performances from children's play to adult music. A great place for a Sat afternoon.

I enjoy visiting the Hylton PAC. We've seen ballets, plays, and numerous shows tailored to our little ones (5/4). My wife usually gets a season pass of some kind. I haven't ever been to a show that was sold out or extremely crowded - everywhere I've sat in the venue had a great view. Balcony seating is my favorite.
