Sottile Theatre



The beautiful and historic Sottile Theatre at the College of Charleston serves as a performing arts venue for the college and the community, hosting events and staged performances of all kinds. Since its opening in 1927, the Sottile Theatre (formerly known as the Gloria Theater) has been a true asset to both the College of Charleston and the entire Charleston community. It remains a vital resource for the area's continued cultural expansion.

In addition to the 785-seat theatre, this facility also offers several lobby areas, an outdoor balcony terrace, and a garden for reception venues. From operas, plays, musicals, ballets and concerts to intimate champagne receptions and conferences, the Sottile Theatre can provide the perfect area for almost any event.

For information about upcoming events, please click the "Upcoming Events" tab in the left-hand navigation column. For ticketing information, please contact the host event organization, or visit their website.
