College of Charleston Theatre and Dance takes audiences to the College’s lush Stern Center Garden, March 17-20, for its next production, “Everybody” — CofC Stages’ first main-season play presented outdoors in nearly 20 years. This modern riff on a 15th century morality play exploring the meaning of life is a topsy-turvy, madcap examination of the human condition. Written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, it is a wildly funny and provocative play, asking us to examine and question why we make the choices we make and how to best live life in our modern world.

“Everybody” is directed by new theatre faculty member Gary Dewitt Marshall, who brings to CofC professional experience in directing as well as acting in television, the silver screen, and Broadway.

Visit https://go.cofc.edu/everybody for more info + tickets.

***“Everybody” is the first full-length play produced by CofC Stages that incorporates live American Sign Language interpreters (March 19th, 2pm performance).

"Many of us have experienced periods of reflection throughout the pandemic, so I think this theme 'Once More' will resonate with many people as they watch the concert,” says Kristin Alexander, the artistic director of "Once More - A Dance Concert."

“After a year of shifting how we as choreographers and performing artists approached the creative process, it feels good to be revisiting work and finding connection with one another."
