About the Hardin Auditorium

Committed to bringing a wide range of expression to enhance our community, Hardin Auditorium is the area’s optimum space for intimate, yet comprehensive, artistic entertainment. From local dance recitals and symphonies, to nationally known acts and author signings, the Hardin transforms; adapting to the unique shows that grace the 800-sq. ft. stage (25’ deep x 32’ wide)

Located within the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center and sharing a roof with the Columbia County Library, Hardin Auditorium comfortably seats 294 patrons (289 seats, and 5 wheelchair access points) from around Columbia County and the surrounding Georgia-South Carolina region. With adjacent dressing and meeting space complimenting the state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment, the Hardin allows for an array of shows.

Funded by the generous contribution from a local community leader in 2006, we look to prolong the rich history of strong local engagement that is brought to life on stage at Hardin Auditorium. We invite you to get involved with the Hardin, experience a remarkable show, bring your show to our stage, or even just say “Hello.”
