Welcome to Furman University! This is one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, and we’re checking out what an afternoon and evening of enjoyment can look like when you take the time to live life like a Paladin.
Located in Greenville, South Carolina, Furman rose to national prominence in the NCAA tournament this year thanks to their dramatic upset of the Virginia Cavaliers. Ingles is an official sponsor of Furman Athletics, so we’re exploring a different kind of drama here today.
This is the Furman Playhouse. They’re currently fundraising for a gorgeous new Theatre Arts facility, and they’d sure appreciate your help.
But before we settle into our seats, be sure to pack an Ingles picnic and enjoy the lovely Furman Lake. With a mile and a half of paved paths to explore and the beautiful Furman Bell Tower overseeing your exploration, it’s a great place to pass the time and enjoy the beauty of nature before heading inside to take in the show.
The Playhouse offers four mainstage performances each year. Currently these students are hard at work staging a new play called, “Our Tempest”. We’re getting a sneak peak at this show that runs the second week of April, which will delight and challenge audiences throughout a 6-show run that will wrap on Sunday, the 16th.
And while the curtains will close on this particular play in mid-April, the Furman Playhouse is always working on new material. So, keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for that next great show coming soon.
