A huge thanks to everyone who attended any part of FestivALL Charleston 2015! Special thanks to the organizers and producers of the individual events, the FestivALL board and committee members, all the sponsors, supporters and Friends of FestivALL, the hundreds of volunteers and The Mayor and all the City of Charleston workers without whom FestivALL could not exist.

We hope you'll join us October 23-25 for FestivALL Fall when a season becomes a work of art. Here is what you can look forward to:

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
