Glow Lyric Theatre

Greenville, South Carolina's professional lyric theatre, specializing in producing socially conscious opera, operetta and musical theatre

Glow Lyric Theatre is a federally and state recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, professional vocal arts company producing opera, operetta and musical theatre in Greenville, South Carolina. GLOW has earned the title of “art with a heart” from the Greenville Journal. Founded in 2009 by Christian Elser and Jenna Tamisiea, GLOW’s Summer Festival Season runs each July and August and features two productions that attempt to promote community understanding.

Amidst the Charleston shooting at AME Church in South Carolina and the subsequent removal of the confederate flag from the statehouse, in July of 2015, GLOW produced two African-American musicals: The Wiz and Hot Mikado. In 2016, GLOW is producing both Bernstein’s West Side Story and an highly innovative production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, in response to the contentious political climate surround immigration. Carolina Curtain Call boasted “GLOW goes a long way in giving musicals urgency during this period of healing in America.” In addition to it’s Summer Festival, GLOW’s Encore! Series, which runs November-May, consists of chamber operas and concerts celebrating the cultural diversity of local singers. Greenville News hailed these performances as “bold, audacious statements of tolerance and inclusion for our community.” GLOW Lyric Theatre has brought its community driven performance each season to venues such as The Peace Center for Performing Arts, McAlister Auditorium at Furman University, The Younts Center for Performing Arts and Mauldin Cultural Arts Center. GLOW’s educational component is an annual Musical Theatre Camp for ages 5-18 which provides a safe and inclusive environment for children of all backgrounds to participate in the arts. Other outreach initiatives include 800+ free tickets given to organizations helping children and families deal with hardship, over 20 scholarships given to underserved children to attend the GLOW Summer Camp, benefit performances for local non-profits serving at-risk youth, Pay What you Can community performances, and $5 family matinee performances.

To produce works of Opera, Operetta and Musical Theatre that are in direct response to the social and political climate of South Carolina.
