Old Town Theatre Company (OTTC) presents "Sidewalk Shakespeare", weekends in August and September, 2020, performed around local storefronts in downtown Rock Hill, SC. "Stroll up to any of the participating businesses and listen to a short Shakespearean scene on the sidewalk. From 12-2pm, a rotation of songs and monologues will be performed."
With her background in Shakespeare performance and instruction, Caroline Kirk was hired to teach the company's actors about Shakespearean language and how to read a line of text the way Shakespeare intended. Kirk was also hired to direct two of the scenes from Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest (featured right). The scene she directed from The Tempest was featured on the CN2 news station and both performances got the attention of about 200 audience members.

Old Town Theatre Company (OTTC) presents Catherine Bush's adaptation of Washington Irving's novel, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, October 24th-26th and October 31st - November 2nd at The Historic White Home.
Sleepy Hollow, a village haunted by the legendary Headless Horseman, has a new schoolmaster-the somewhat hapless and extremely superstitious Ichabod Crane. When Ichabod tries to win the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel, he makes an enemy of her former suitor, the brawny Brom Bones. Brom vows revenge and, one dark and spooky night, Ichabod finds himself in for the ride of his life!
OTTC uses only six actors to play multiple parts in this site-specific production. This allows the actors, as well as the audience, to use their imagination to the fullest. At any given moment, the characters could become trees, or make the fleeting clop sounds of the horseman. And it happens in an instant, unbeknownst to the audience. This fresh take on a well-known classic will keep you on the edge of your seat.
OTTC is a new professional theatre company in Rock Hill, SC. With a lack of traditional theatre space in Rock Hill, OTTC uses specific locations around Old Town Rock Hill, the original downtown area of the city. OTTC is professional in the sense that all actors, designers, etc are paid.
