Horizon Theatre Company

1083 Austin Avenue NE
Atlanta, Ga. 30307
(404) 584-8815
www.horizontheatre.com

The Horizon Theatre Company occupies a small space in Little Five Points. While the seating might be cramped, tight quarters do lend themselves to a great view of the stage. What the company lacks in spaciousness, it more than makes up for in terms of talent. If you’re hungry during intermission, try the affordable, tasty cookies for $2 or indulge in a $3 glass of wine.

The Southwest Arts Center is not only a great performing arts space, it’s a great place to take continuing education classes, thanks to the adjoining art gallery and arts center. Classes include acting, dance (swing, ballet, modern, foxtrot), drawing and painting and guitar. Adults, teenagers, children and even infants are all welcome. If you don’t mind a drive to the Cascades, Southwest Arts Center will be well worth your visit.
