Take pArt Projects

The Sumter Opera House looks to promote everyday moments of art in our city, becoming more than simply a venue, but an indispensable hub of creativity and community in Sumter. The Take pArt Projects seek to showcase the individual talents of our community members and elevate the way we live to embrace a holistic expression of imagination and expression. Make sure to check back to this page as new opportunities to participate are presented!
