The Cole Auditorium

Established in 1999, the Robert L. and Elizabeth S. Cole Auditorium and Community Center is an entertainment hub located on the campus of Richmond Community College in Hamlet. The facility features a 1,000-seat auditorium, dressing rooms, kitchen area, banquet rooms and a spacious lobby with a beautiful view of the college campus. 

The Cole Auditorium hosts multiple large-scale touring productions and nationally known acts throughout the year, providing a perfect date night or a family outing without having to travel to a big city. The Cole also serves as an excellent venue for special occasions and events or meeting place for your organization or business. Rent the Cole!
