Campus Parking

Parking on campus is usually not an issue on the nights of shows. In the evening, visitors are welcome to park in any spot other than spaces reserved for a particular person or a space that says 24-hour towing. If parking is scarce, there is a visitors lot at the corner of Columbia College Dr. and Colonial Dr. and another at the corner of N. Main St. and Columbia College Dr. Handicap spaces are also located near the theatre. Please arrive early if you are concerned about parking.


Would you like to see one of our shows without paying a cent? When you volunteer to usher or sell concessions you get to see the show for FREE! If you are interested please contact Workshop Theatre at WTVolunteer1@gmail.com to volunteer at one of our performances.

Partnership with Columbia College becomes official

It's official and we couldn't be more excited about being partners with Columbia College! Our last four years on the campus have been such a wonderful experience. Columbia College welcomed us with open arms. We would like to thank President Tom Bogart, Executive Vice President, Francis Schodowski, and Technical Director Patrick Faulds for helping us find a home and for being incredible partners. We love that we can continue to share our art with the Columbia College students and the community that has supported us for 54 years. Thank you all!

"After an ongoing relationship between Columbia College – specifically Cottingham Theater – and Workshop Theatre of South Carolina since the 2017-2018 academic year, the two organizations gathered together to sign an official Memorandum of Understanding on March 8, 2022. The two organizations have worked together for four years, but both are excited to make the partnership official and go forward together to serve the community through the art of theatre."
