The Missing Moon – South Carolina Children's Theatre

Written by Spartanburg-based playwright Kerry Ferguson, we have a brand new production coming soon to SCCT's 2nd Stage April 1-3! 🌕

Two islands.
One moon.
When bored Bianca Blue lassos the moon from the sky one night, things get really weird. High tides hit, strange stuff washes up on shore, and moon-obsessed Mona May leads lunar search parties. With live music, waves of whimsy, and maybe even a sea-captain pirate goblin, The Missing Moon is a playful tale of friendship, finding our purpose, and figuring out that we’re better when we’re together.

Grab your tickets today via our link below! 🎟

South Carolina Children's Theatre! January 28th- February 6th! So excited!! https://scchildrenstheatre.org/robin-hood/
South Carolina Children’s Theatre - Greenville, SC by: Craig Gaulden Davis Triangle Construction Company, INC. Metromont Corporation South Carolina Children's Theatre Com este presente generoso, o Theatre foi capaz de levar avante sua missão de expandir e comissionar o escritório de arquitetura Craig Gaulden Davis com sede em Greenville para planejar e projetar sua nova sede. O prédio de 36.821 pés quadrados possui um teatro de proscênio de 300 lugares, um teatro flexível de 100 lugares, um lobby interativo, salas de aula de performance flexíveis, camarins, uma loja de fantasias, área de produção de cena e áreas de administração. O design do teatro pretende evocar a infância, com paredes curvas e vidros de cores vivas decorando a fachada. As quatro cores características do teatro - laranja, verde, azul e azul-petróleo - também estão incorporadas em todo o edifício. A fase de construção do projeto foi única, pois muitos dos consultores selecionados, incluindo a Triangle Construction como o empreiteiro geral, estiveram envolvidos desde o início do processo de design. Por causa dessa colaboração inicial e da capacidade de contribuir com o projeto, a equipe de construção foi capaz de selecionar os materiais de construção mais cedo, agendar a entrega do material de construção e começar o trabalho no local mais cedo, tudo o que contribuiu muito para o cronograma. O projeto também incorporou um sistema de painéis pré-fabricados de concreto que não era apenas o suporte estrutural das paredes externas, mas também o acabamento. Como um dos primeiros colaboradores no projeto, Metromont foi capaz de começar a fabricar esses painéis muito antes mesmo do início da construção. Com esse projeto e método de construção modular, a Triangle conseguiu fazer um telhado no prédio muito mais rápido do que uma construção mais tradicional teria permitido. Um dos sucessos deste projeto foi o resultado direto de uma equipe colaborativa, comunicativa e coesa de arquitetos, designers, engenheiros, construtores, subcontratados e líderes de equipe. A equipe interagia muito como uma família; reuniões semanais divertidas e informativas permitiram que as decisões fossem tomadas com rapidez e que as expectativas fossem expressas. A equipe do subcontratado era local, muito envolvida desde o início e tinha grande interesse no sucesso da construção do teatro. Eles compreenderam e aderiram aos padrões da Triangle para comunicação, qualidade, responsabilidade e segurança.
Congrats to everyone involved in the production of ANNIE at South Carolina Children's Theatre! It was a wonderful show! Here is a album of selects - All photos will be on my website for download later today!
From #myTMCS1st grade: We had so much fun on first grade's #fieldtrip to the South Carolina Children's Theatre. Our class watched a musical about #Spookley, the square pumpkin. The play taught us about being a good friend and that it's ok to be different! Then we walked to Falls Park, Greenville, had lunch, walked across a big suspension bridge, and saw a waterfall! #myTMCS #fallspark #scchildrenstheatre
