About the Shows

 

Amadeus
by Peter Shaffer
Directed by Ian Frank

Run Dates:  April 3-18, 2020
Drayton Hall Theatre

Peter Shaffer once called his Tony® and Oscar®-winning story of jealousy, ambition, and divine genius “a fantasia on the theme of Mozart and Salieri.” In Shaffer’s fictionalized history, successful composer Antonio Salieri recounts how he became intrigued by his genius contemporary Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, then quickly irritated by the young composer’s obscene immaturity. As Salieri’s disgust turns to bitter resentment, he begins to question a God who would bestow heavenly gifts on someone so unworthy, and sets out to destroy Mozart’s career. Tony® Award winner for Best Play, 1981.

 

Black Snow
Written by Mikhail Bulgakov
Adapted by Keith Reddin
Directed by Steven Pearson

Run Dates: March 19-28, 2020
Center for Performance Experiment

Keith Reddin’s adaptation of legendary Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov's 1936 novel is a semi-autobiographical account of Bulgakov's experience with the Moscow Art Theatre, headed in part by influential director Konstantin Stanislavski. In Black Snow, a writer named Sergei Maxudov is persuaded to submit his novel to the "Independent Theatre" to have it adapted for the stage, but quickly finds himself and his creation subject to the whims of the theatre's figureheads. Censored for its criticism of the Soviet government, the original novel didn't actually see publication until 1967, more than twenty-five years after Bulgakov's death.

 

God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Nick Good

Run Dates: April 22-25, 2020
Lab Theatre

The rules of civility are tested — and ultimately demolished — in Yasmina Reza’s powerfully provocative, Tony®-winning script. A playground skirmish between two eleven-year-old boys results in two broken teeth and a meeting between the boys’ parents to discuss the altercation. Diplomacy soon degenerates into pandemonium as the four adults confront barely concealed prejudices that transform once-polite conversation into a state of unbridled savagery. Tony® Award winner for Best Play, 2009.

 


 

Theatre South Carolina embraces non-traditional casting and encourages the casting of ethnic minority actors, female actors, and physically-challenged actors where possible. Individual show directors, together with the artistic director and the acting faculty, make all casting decisions. While some parts may be cast before auditions, that is always the case with guest actors.

 

 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
