Out of an abundance of caution and given the winter storm alert and state of emergency announced for the area, we are cancelling the Friday performance of THE COLOR PURPLE. We will open the show on Saturday, January 22 at 8pm. For those who have purchased tickets for the Friday performance, you may call the box office to exchange your tickets at 803-799-6551 We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Tickets are on sale now.
This musical adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) spotlights Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story.
With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues, The Color Purple is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love, and a celebration of life.
Director Jocelyn Sanders has assembled a cast of powerful voices that are sure to fill the Cottingham Theatre auditorium as they bring this story to life.
This revival version of The Color Purple still features the beloved songs and powerful story of the original, but brings the characters and their stories to the forefront. This adaptation won the 2015 Tony Award © for Best Revival of a Musical.
Roland Haynes Jr. returns as music director. His band also played The Color Purple at Workshop Theatre nine years ago. Choreography is by Crystal Aldamuy.
Tickets are on sale now. 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.
All performances will be at Columbia College’s Cottingham Theatre, located at 1301 Columbia College Drive, Columbia, SC, 29203. Parking is available on campus.
Workshop Theatre's production of the Color Purple is proudly sponsored by The Lampkin Law Firm and Jeffrey Lampkin’s Country Boy Kitchen.
