Location, Location, Location “The Movement Studio Play”

The Location Site-Specific Plays return with “The Movement Studio Play”. Two 10-minute plays are chosen from a contest where the first line must be “Hey don’t sweat it…”. The location, a Pilates studio, and the writer’s inspiration fills in the rest.  These plays are written specifically for this event and have not been performed anywhere else. Shows are appropriate for all ages, so bring the family!


Times: Performances begin at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm
Location: Centered Pilates, 108 Capitol Street


Cashore, Magnuson, Sale and Hodgman - The Spice of FestivALL

FestivALL always has plenty of great music and family fun events. Set the set the schedule filter on those catagories and take your pick. But there are also events that you may overlook if you're not careful. They won't be the largest events, but they will be unique and often very special experiences that you'll be telling your friends about for a long time. They truly help put the spice in FestivALL.

Here are four of them this year:

Weird, Wild & Wonderful: Ann Magnuson presents An Evening of SurRURALism™

Los Angeles based actress, writer and native Charlestonian, Ann Magnuson workshops a new live show celebrating her West Virginia roots, surrealistic dreams, and big city escapades. Coining a new term, SurRURALism ™, Ann combines the surrealistic with the homespun in a sophisticated nightclub setting where “a helluva lot of moonshine spills into Moon River (along with something that smells a lot like licorice.)” Songs, stories, and shenanigans will be accompanied by pianist Tom Judson.

A Play in a Day

The Alban Arts Center in partnership with The Appalachian Artists Collective in performance for Charleston's FestivAll: "A Play In A Day" This conceptional theatrical project will take a traditional folk story, and in the space of 24 hours; audition, cast, rehearse and stage a performance for Charleston's FestivAll. "A Play in a Day" is an excellent event for children and their families.
