Performances At The Mann Center

As the Community & Arts Center of Sanford and Lee County, the Mann Center of North Carolina is the host of a variety of events all year long, from festivals and concerts to community theater productions and fashion shows.

There’s always something going on over at the Mann Center! Our 300-seat auditorium hosts productions almost every week, ranging from community theater and orchestras to professional shows.

In 2018, the Mann Center was host to performances and productions including Annie Junior, The Prodigal & the Princess, the Dreams Do Come True Fashion Show, The Nutcracker, Jamie Laval’s Celtic Christmas, Alice in Wonderland, and many more. In 2019, the Mann Center auditorium stage will be home to the much-anticipated Arts & Vine Series — our year-round series of live shows that bring leading national and regional acts to Sanford. Popular beach music stars Chairmen Of The Board, The Tams and Jim Quick & Coastline are among the headline acts who will appearing throughout 2019.
