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."

We hope you like it as much as we do! If you have questions, you can call the Box Office at 803-799-6551.
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.
For our 54th season, we are returning to live performances at Columbia College's
Cottingham Theatre with a slate of four season shows, including an orginial work by a local playwright and a Tony award winning musical,
and three incredible non-season shows. We are so excited to announce our 2021-2022 season.
