Boeing Boeing to be Perfomed at Cottingham Theatre

Workshop Theatre continues to make strides toward our move to the new location in Northeast Columbia. Unfortunately we have encountered our share of red tape and will be unable to kick off our 50th season at the new location as originally planned. But THE SHOW MUST GO ON, and it will! Workshop's season opener, the outrageously funny Boeing Boeing, will be performed at Columbia College's Cottingham Theatre, located at 1301 Columbia College Drive, Columbia, SC 29203. Due to this change, seating will be general admission for this show.

A special thanks to Dr. Carol Moore, the Columbia College Board of Trustees, and Columbia College staff for assisting us while we worked through this 11th hour change to our season plans. We hope to be in our new permanent space soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at the show.
