Off the Wall: Columbia City Ballet

Friday September 30, 2011 – Sunday October 2, 2011

Columbia City Ballet’s William Starrett’s Off the Wall & Onto the Stage translates South Carolina artist Jonathan Green’s extraordinary images to the contemporary stage in a visionary return to classical ballet’s blending of dance, music and fine art. Comprised of a series of vignettes drawn directly from 22 of Jonathan’s energetic paintings, William’s production explores the dynamics and inner meanings of the paintings. The costumes, the landscapes and the people in Jonathan’s works literally come to life in dance set to music rooted in the history of the region, including gospel, jazz, folk songs and hymns. This unique commingling of the arts is an exhilarating testament to the lively, multi-cultural reality of the South, and one with real significance for America and the world.

Performed at the Koger Center – Tickets on sale at Capitol Tickets! Purchase by phone at (803)251-2222 or online at www.capitoltickets.com.

Fabulous Ongoing Events, Upcoming Events, News and Special Offers!

South Pacific: Town Theatre

LAST WEEK! Now – October 1, 2011
This classic musical’s timeless tunes – “Some Enchanted Evening,” “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair” and “Bali Ha’i,” – alone are worth the price of admission. However, the classic story from the Golden Age of American Musical Theatre will enchant those who have loved it for years as well as those experiencing it for the first time.
Visit the Town Theatre website for additional info.



Anything Goes: Workshop Theatre

LAST WEEK! Now – October 1. 2011

It’s anchors aweigh for mirth, mischief and music as Anything Goes sails on now to October 1. Sponsored by Blue Cross / Blue Shield of South Carolina, the comedy of lovers and liars on a 1930s ocean cruise launches Workshop Theatre’s 44th season.
It’s a tale of boy-meets-girl in triplicate and the comic complications that ensue. All the deceptions and romances get sorted out and disaster averted aboard a ship where magic and deception rule, ensuring that “anything goes.” The hijinks on the high seas unwind amid Cole Porter classics — a blend of toe-tapping rousers and sophisticated ballads like “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top,” “Blow Gabriel Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Friendship,” “Easy to Love” and “All Through the Night,” as well as the title song. Times have changed, as Porter suggests, but Anything Goes is still tops in entertainment. To paraphrase his urbane, witty lyrics, the voyage on our stage promises to be “de-wonderful” for everyone.
Visit Workshop’s website for all the info!


The Great American Trailer Park Musical: Trustus Theatre

LAST WEEK! Now – October 1, 2011

When Pippi, the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil–loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband—the storms begin to brew. Throw in Pippi’s insane marker-sniffing ex-boyfriend, and you’ve got a recipe for hilarious disaster. Please note that there will not be a show on Sunday September 11th. All tickets are $25.00 Visit the Trustus Theatre website.
