The Charleston Gaillard Center Presents:

There is perhaps no better way to describe our 2019-2020 season than “an embarrassment of riches.” Dvořák’s New World Symphony hardly needs an introduction. Among the most popular symphonies of all time, From the New World debuted to “thunderous applause” at Carnegie Hall in 1893, with immediate encores around the world. Dvořák wrote this masterpiece after studying Native American and African American spirituals in the United States, and became heavily involved in promoting the success of African American musicians and composers. He fervently believed that the future of American composition lay in the roots of spirituals and folk music, saying, “They are the folk songs of America and your composers must turn to them.”

Is He Crzy or a Hero?

In an Oregon psychiatric facility, the intimidating Nurse Ratched has unyielding control over her patients. That is, until the lively, rebellious Randle McMurphy enters the picture. As McMurphy takes over the yard and rallies the patients to his cult of personality, the power struggle between he and Nurse Ratched grows more and more explosive.

The basis for the classic 1975 movie starring Jack Nicholson, Dale Wasserman’s Tony Award winning adaptation of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest brings Ken Kesey’s counterculture novel to vivid life onstage.

A Rollicking Showbiz Farce for Thespians and Audiences Alike

With their relationship on the brink after George is caught cheating with a young starlet, the Hays discover they may have one final chance at fame and fortune: Frank Capra is coming to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, there may be a spot for them in his next film. Unfortunately for them, everything that can go wrong does. Moon Over Buffalo is a rollicking showbiz farce that’ll resonate with everyone that’s ever called the theatre their home.
