And they’ve combined, merged, and formed this amazing whole that you’ll see on the Sottile stage on May 1. Without these 13, this show would not be possible. They’ve made this year diverse, beautiful, and simply perfect.

Welcome to Sottile Theatre

by Anna Hartman on April 18, 2016

There are few theater spaces in Charleston that are more beautiful than Sottile Theatre.

Sottile-1Now part of the College of Charleston, Sottile started off as the Gloria Theatre was built by Albert Sottile in the 1920s. Originally, the space showed movies and vaudville-style shows to theater goers on King Street downtown. It was revered and admired as a premier movie house. When the movie Gone With the Wind debuted in South Carolina, the cast showed up at the the Gloria to celebrate the film.


Sottile Theatre was donated to the College of Charleston in the 1970s, and restoration began in the 80s. But in true Charleston style, many of the historic details were maintained–including the blue sky dome over the audience and the ornamental ironwork, making Sottile a revered and beautiful space in the heart of Downtown Charleston.  Sottile-5 Sottile-6


We are excited to bring LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: Charleston to the Sottile Stage on May 1.


You can purchase tickets at City Paper Tickets. And remember that a portion of ticket proceeds will benefit WINGS for Kids, so you’ll witness an afternoon of truth telling and motherhood all for a good cause.
