CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The Spoleto Festival USA box office is opening earlier than usual this year and in a new location.

The box office for this spring's festival opens Monday in the Charleston Visitors Center.

Traditionally, the box office is in the Gaillard Municipal Auditorium, but that building is being renovated into what city officials say will be a world class performing arts center to open late next year.

The box office is opening earlier this year to take advantage of tourists visiting Charleston during Easter week and the following week for the Cooper River Bridge run.

This year's Spoleto Festival USA runs from May 24 through June 9 featuring 160 performances by 45 artistic ensembles. The offerings range from Greek tragedy to Shakespearean comedy to modern graphic novels.
