Exterior of SCAD Show Atlanta



173 14th St. NE, Atlanta, Georgia

Located in the heart of Midtown, SCADshow is the university's premier theater space in Atlanta. The venue opened in 1986 as the Academy Theater and was later rechristened as the 14th Street Playhouse while under the management of the Woodruff Arts Center's Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre. During the last quarter-century, dozens of local and national companies have graced its stages.

SCAD acquired the theater in December 2013. After a whirlwind five-week renovation, it was rededicated as SCADshow.

SCADshow offers two spaces for rental, the 365-seat Mainstage and the 180-seat Stage 2.
