Univ of South Carolina -Dept. of Theatre and Dance – Festival Stage


The Festival Stage is portable and intended to become a home for outdoor performances and other presentations around South Carolina, and beyond, for years to come.

This touring stage is part of a Department of Theatre and Dance initiative to fundamentally expand our own horizons. We want to go beyond our buildings and our campus and out into communities around our state. It is our intention the multiple day Festival Stage residencies are partnerships with the arts in each community we visit. These events are to a mix of USC performing arts programs with the local artists in each community. On a given Saturday, an audience might experience on the Festival Stage, a USC ballet performance, then a local high school band, then a local theatre group, then a chamber ensemble, then a stage combat demonstration, then poetry readings, then a USC theatre production……

Art is being created every day across our communities both large and small. Let’s work together to present celebrations of all the richness these artists bring.
