In its fifth season, Coastal Stage Productions has announced upcoming productions as well as a new performance venue.
Kicking off the season, March 29-April 7, is “The Hallelujah Girls,” a rollicking Southern comedy that takes place at Spa-Dee-Dah, and abandoned church turned day spa. Six senior lady friends gather each Friday afternoon to face life head on.
Next up is “Bus Stop,” in which five very different travelers are challenged with trying to get along overnight. The four-time Tony Award nominee, by playwright Willian Inge, will run May 24-June 2.
“Moon Over Buffalo,” to be staged Aug. 16-25, is a madcap comedy about two fading stage stars of the 1950s who might have a chance at a comeback. The play was written by Tony Award winner Ken Ludwig, author of “Lend Me a Tenor.”
Finally, “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” by Sarah Ruhl is slated for Oct. 25-Nov. 3. Another wildly imaginative comedy is full of intrigue and action.
The venue, Coastal Stage @ AmVets, is located at 1831 Ribaut Road in Port Royal. Use of the recently remodeled space is the result of a partnership with AmVets Post 70 of Beaufort. This will be a permanent performance location for CSP’s 2019 season and beyond.
Seating is available for 100 people in an intimate black-box style theatre environment. The facility offers full cash bar and light refreshments.
Shows are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, with Saturday matinees to be added to meet demand.
