A Quarantini with Casey!
On Wednesday evening, VP of Marketing Andrea Gannon shared a virtual Quarantini with long-time, beloved Director Casey Colgan to check in on him at his home in New York City.
Arts Center Summer Camps Now Online!
Summer days at the Arts Center have always meant our building’s studios and hallways are filled with the joyous sounds of young people! Children and teens would be in the Black Box rehearsal space on the second floor singing, dancing, and acting; while budding visual artists expressed their creativity through a variety of mediums (clay, paint, printmaking and more) on the third floor in the Arts Center’s Disney Art Studio.
Since, as this time, the S.C. Governor has yet to reopen entertainment venues like the Arts Center, and for the safety of everyone, the Arts Center is holding camps online this year! There’s an impressive VIRTUAL line-up of performance camps, actor workshops, dance camps, and visual arts offerings!
Registration is open, so act now! artshhi.com/camps
Since our stage is dark right now, we’d like to reminisce with you about some great moments at the Arts Center.
This week’s Flashback Friday is from A Chorus Line, starring Director/Choreographer Casey Colgan teaching the iconic “One” to the cast in a Black Box Studio rehearsal!
Reminder to "Play" at Home!
The Arts Center is proud to have had an existing partnership with the Kennedy Center through their Kennedy Center Partners-in-Education (KCPIE) program since 1992. We’re pleased to let you know about their latest, fun family-oriented initiative.
During this unique time, the Kennedy Center has micro-commissioned playwrights to write a short play or musical (ten minutes or less) for students which are now available for free download on playathome.org. All plays are intended for families or small groups of people to perform together at home.
The Play at Home project is a collaboration between theaters from across the country as a response to the rapidly changing landscape of the performing arts during this global crisis. The mission of the initiative is simple: to continue to inspire joy and creativity through live theater.
Share your play via social media using #artshhi and #playathomeplays.
Your support has always been important, and even more so now.
We can move through this unprecedented time together! A heartfelt “thank you” for all you do for the Arts Center!
The arts brighten our spirits and nourish our souls. Consider a donation to our Campaign for Continued Excellence, an emergency fund that will directly impact our ability to return to cultural arts programming as quickly as possible.
