Classes are taught by experienced professionals, in a nurturing and encouraging environment. Theatre classes improve self-confidence, creativity, teamwork, and communication skills. Discipline, quality, and individuality are stressed. Each student is given a chance to shine and will learn how to stand out in the crowd while developing a passion for the performing arts.
Dear Village Square Family:
We want to say, first of all on behalf of all of us at Village Square, that we miss our Theatre family and hope you are well. While we all want nothing more than to have Village Square filled with patrons and performers, and hear the sound of laughter and applause… we will remain closed for the time being for a number of reasons. Our Governor has not allowed venues like Village Square to open at this time. And even if we were allowed to open back up, activities like live Theatre are considered high risk for transmission of COVID19. It is nearly impossible to maintain social distancing. Spaces are small, without windows and proper ventilation. During our production of Newsies this year, the flu spread rapidly through the cast, illustrating the difficulty of this situation. Theatre is an activity that involves people interacting very closely with each other. It is the nature of the Art. For all of these reasons, we believe it is not yet safe to open for classes and productions. The safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers, students, and actors is our number one priority.
In the meantime, the Board will continue closely following CDC and DHEC guidelines and will keep you updated as things change. Know that we will be back when the danger has passed, and we will be bigger and better than ever. Our productions of Frozen Jr and Little Women will happen. We will offer new classes and exciting new seasons and opportunities. Like our Facebook page, and keep checking our website. We will offer some virtual classes this summer.
Until we get back on the stage, stay safe!
Artistic Director, Village Square
