Originally built in 1985, the Southern State Community College Auditorium was renamed The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium in 2002, posthumously dedicated to honor Ed Daniels, the original theatre director at SSCC. A plaque hangs outside the auditorium doors. The plaque reads:

“A Renaissance man who built the College’s theater program, but whose greatest production was his teaching career. He touched the lives of hundreds of students, and instilled in them the love of learning and the quest for excellence in their lives. He was a teacher, friend, father figure, and mentor to many students, as well as a trusted and beloved faculty colleague. His life was one of service to others. His spirit will always remain within the walls of this theater.”

In September 2012, a phase of renovation was completed on the house portion of the auditorium. It features artwork for every produced show by SSCC Theatre since the arrival of current theatre director, Rainee Angles, in 2005.
