A letter from Workshop Theatre’s Board of Trustees President

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."
-- Abraham Lincoln

I write to you today, excited about the growing opportunities to continue to "sharpen axes" with the most incredible community theatre in the Midlands.

As many of you know, Workshop Theatre is transitioning into our new home at 1051 Sparkleberry Lane Extension.

It's an 8,500-square-foot facility, equipped with a permanent stage, new chairs for our patrons, a sizeable lobby with box office and concessions, and all the tools to continue Workshop’s legacy of incredible theatre productions.

This new location was chosen with consideration for our longtime patrons, but also understanding that there's a growing audience in the Northeast part of Richland County hungry for the Arts.

We've been welcomed by our neighbors with open arms as they await our inaugural production. Our hope was that we would be able to open our doors on February 16 with Lorraine Hansberry's classic A Raisin in the Sun. However, it appears that date is no longer feasible due to challenges outside of our control.

In the interest of making sure every experience for our patrons is remarkable and unforgettable we will be delaying our season opener until March 16 with the outrageous Marc Camoletti farce Boeing Boeing. A Raisin in the Sun has been rescheduled to be the third of our four season shows.

You have always been a treasured supporter of the theatre and I know that we can count on you to help us keep the Arts alive in the Midlands.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Warm regards,

Darci S. Rush
Workshop Theatre
Board of Trustees President
