College of Charleston Theatre and Dance Presents: Out of Control

Out of Control is the theme of the fall dance concert, with choreography by dance program faculty and guest artists. How does a restriction or limitation actually encourage creativity? What happens when the creative process is reversed or altered in such a way that it generates a challenge to all artists involved in the process? How do dancers and even audience members affect the final product? This concert promises to be an exciting and entertaining venture into creating and viewing dance.

Charleston Stage presents Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Nothing goes right for Alexander in this charming musical for young people, adapted from Judith Viorst’s acclaimed children’s story. There’s no prize in his breakfast cereal, no dessert in his lunchbox, lima beans for dinner and kissing on TV. When he loses his best friend on the same day it’s obviously a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day.
