The theater is the home of the Greensboro Ballet, the Community Theatre of Greensboro, the Livestock Players Musical Theatre, the Greensboro Youth Symphony, and a variety of other local performing arts groups. Many of these groups perform during the city’s annual OPUS Concert series and during the “Music for a Sunday Evening in the Park” concert series. The longest running performance art group in the city is the Community Theatre of Greensboro which has presented Broadway plays and musicals for over 45 years.
