The Travelers Rest Artists Alliance is pleased to announce our newest initiative, the South Carolina Repertory Theatre. The goal of this company is to bring live, performing arts to the City of Travelers Rest in order to establish a cultural presence to boost the economy and quality of life in the Upstate. We estimate that live theatre will create over $2,000,000 in revenue for the surrounding businesses.
The brainchild of local natives, Auti Shearin, Kimilee Bryant and Candice Bryant, who grew up just a few doors away from each other in Travelers Rest, the founders are working tirelessly to realize their vision. Auti Shearin is a graduate of the Governor’s School where her love of theatre exploded and is currently the Executive Director of Limelight Players. Kimilee Bryant most recently performed in NYC on Broadway and Candice Bryant has had a dynamic career in television and theatre. Locally, Kimilee and Candice’s most recent project was the SC Performing Arts Renaissance Theatre.
South Carolina Repertory Theatre will combine plot and performance genres to expose all members of the community to the wonders of opera, live and musical theatre, with professional productions of new and classic works. The shows will reveal our links to each other, to history, culture and education. The theatre promises to attract new audiences - both local and distant - by providing an exclusive opportunity to see these artistic worlds meet. South Carolina Repertory Theatre’s main goals are to educate, entertain, unite, and inspire the community through professionally presented theatrical works. Performance dates will be announced soon!
