The Mauldin Cultural Center has a variety of fun-filled events coming up this spring and summer! With extra precautions in place against COVID-19, the Cultural Center is committed to bringing safe, quality theatre productions and outdoor events to our community.
From April 9 – 25, the Mauldin Youth Theatre will perform Roald Dahl’s Matilda, JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson. Tickets are $15 plus processing fees and can be bought online at mauldinculturalcenter.org or by phone at 864-335-4862.
On April 30 and May 1, the Cultural Center will resume its outdoor festivals with the PB&J: Pizza, Blues & Jazz Festival and Arts Market. We’ve rounded up your favorite pizza joints to serve you at this inaugural festival, with live blues and jazz and local arts vendors. Friday will feature music from Roosevelt Collier, and Saturday will have the Greenville Jazz Collective take the stage. Sink your teeth into the cheesiest, greasiest slices of pie around and groove to the music at the PB&J Festival!
The Mauldin Theatre Company will bring Disney’s Freaky Friday to the stage from May 7 – 16. When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again. Disney’s Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. Tickets are $15 plus processing fees and can be bought online at mauldinculturalcenter.org or by phone at 864-335-4862.
The following weekend on May 21-23, the newly established MCC Shakes! program will perform a “Shakespeare in the park”-style production of Twelfth Night. Viola and her twin brother Sebastian have been shipwrecked; each believes the other to be drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man and, under the name of Cesario, gets a job as a servant for Duke Orsino. What follows is a comedy of mistaken identity, young love, and hilarious shenanigans. This show will be performed outside at the Mauldin Outdoor Amphitheater, and best of all, it’s completely free! Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy this comedic Shakespearian classic.
With summer comes our Beachin’ Fridays music series, every Friday from May 28 to July 30. Bands from around the Southeast will be playing all of your favorite beach hits and more at the Mauldin Outdoor Amphitheater. There will be a variety of food trucks to choose from each week, and the finale always ends with a spectacular fireworks display. Bring your dancing shoes, lawn chairs and blankets – it’s gonna be a long, fun, Southern night!
The Mauldin Farmers Market also returns this year, every Tuesday from June 1 to July 27. The Mauldin Farmers Market features a variety of vendors from around the Upstate selling locally sourced and produced items including produce, dairy, eggs, honey, gifts, apparel, accessories, treats, pastries, and more!

Every other seat of each row in our auditorium will be left empty and unavailable to purchase to allow room for social distancing between patrons. Guests and staff are required to wear masks while in our building, and we will be conducting temperature checks at the door.
