The Mauldin Cultural Center has always been a welcoming space for the performing arts. In 2017, the facility became home to the newly established Mauldin Youth Theatre as they produced their inaugural play, Disney’s The Lion King, JR. Now, our performing arts schedule is expanding to include more youth theatre, musical revues, and a community theatre for both adult and youth actors!
Check out our 2020-2021 Theatre Season below!

Rebellion is nigh in 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.
Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly lovable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
Please note: Mauldin Youth Theatre originally planned a production of Disney’s Newsies, JR. for their 2021 Spring production, but this will be postponed due to a change in arrangements with the theatrical licensing agency.

Viola and her twin brother Sebastian have been shipwrecked; each believes the other to be drowned.
