Midlands Gives is Tuesday, May 5

Tuesday is MidlandsGives and we need your help - now, more than ever. Workshop Theatre has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, as have all the arts organizations in the Midlands. We need your support to be able to continue to provide high quality live local theatre to the Midlands. Thank you for your continued support of Workshop Theatre and the arts in South Carolina.

What's happening with Workshop Theatre?

In the days of COVID-19, this is the question every organization is facing: what's happening? How are we moving forward from here?

Fortunately, we were able to close out our run of shows for Belles just as capacity restrictions were being placed on businesses in the Midlands. Our season finale The Wedding Singer has been postponed, as was our summer children's show Disney Aladdin Jr. We are in discussions with Columbia College trying to line up potential dates for these shows, as well as the shows for the 2020-2021 season. (No, we can't announce the season lineup just yet.) The Wedding Singer dates are contingent upon us being able to get the actors back in a rehearsal space with enough time to give the material the attention it deserves. We will honor any remaining tickets that season ticket holders may still have.

In the meantime, to help fill the void, check out our Fierce & Fabulous At-Home Cabaret!

We miss each and every one of you, and hope to be able to enjoy theatre with you again soon. Stay safe and stay healthy.

COVID-19 Update

We are currently working on a plan for our May show, The Wedding Singer, and our acting school classes and lessons. As always, we take the health and safety of our patrons and artists very seriously. We are taking precautions to keep our patrons and artists safe by:

  • disinfecting the auditorium seats and arm rests after each performance
  • disinfecting all hard surfaces like countertops and door handles
  • having hand sanitizer and tissues available in the lobby
  • volunteers and staff will regularly wash and sanitize hands
  • discontinuing the usage of recycled playbills

All staff and audience members who are not feeling well or have flu-like symptoms are encouraged to stay home. While we have a no-refund policy, we are happy to exchange your tickets for another show or for a show next season. We will continue to evaluate the situation on a day-by-day basis.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at Workshoptheatreofsc1@gmail.com or at 803-799-4876.
