"Other Desert Cities" Runs March 22 - 31

Workshop Theatre brings family drama to the stage with Jon Robin Baitz’s Other Desert Cities March 22-31 at Columbia College’s Cottingham Theatre.

Directed by Jeffery Schwalk, Other Desert Cities tells the story of Brooke Wyeth as she returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history — a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.

General admission ticket sales begin for members on March 13, and for the general public beginning March 15. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office at 803-799-6551 from noon to 5 pm during the week. On the weekends, the Box Office opens two hours before the show begins. Tickets are also available at the door the night of the show.

"She Loves Me" Coming This May

Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance. Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a "lonely hearts advertisement" in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves... and of all the twists and turns along the way!
