The Maxwell Theatre


Default Image Sample

The Grover C. Maxwell Performing Arts Theatre, part of the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs,  is the cultural heart of the Augusta University campus, and students take center stage. The Department of Music ensembles and Theatre Augusta University, from the Department of Communication, provide ample performance opportunities for students. Students, faculty, staff, and community members attend a broad variety of events. The Lyceum Series presents national and international music, dance, and theatre companies. The Harry Jacobs Chamber Music Society brings a rich series of world class performers to campus. 

The Maxwell's stage and stage thrust multi-level extension make the theatre extremely versatile. Performances from opera and theatre to symphony and dance all feel at home on the Maxwell stage. The theatre is an intimate venue for the audience with each of its 740 seats remarkably close to the stage. Many performances at the Maxwell Theatre are free to Augusta University students with a valid Augusta University ID (JagCard), and all performances are reasonably priced for the general public.  Discounts are often available for Augusta University faculty and staff, Augusta University alumni, members of the military, and children.
