Originally a 1929 silent movie theatre, the Stevens Center is a magnificently restored neoclassical theatre located in downtown Winston-Salem, N.C. Re-opened in April 1983, the Stevens Center is the primary performance space for University of North Carolina School of the Arts as well as for the Winston-Salem Symphony, Piedmont Opera Theatre and several other local and state arts organizations.
The Stevens Center is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with a two-channel hearing assistance system. A total of 1,364 seats on two levels offer superb sightlines and exceptional acoustics.
UNCSA Presents is the School of the Arts’ program to bring the finest music, dance and theater artists to Winston-Salem audiences and into meaningful contact with our students. This special series premiered in May 2018 with American Music Series—a series of rock, country, blues, gospel and folk concerts by leading artists, including legends Steve Earle and Mavis Staples. It continues for the 2019-20 season, featuring Broadway hits, programming for families with children, popular music events and a variety of performances by Americana musicians.
