Founded by Kimilee Bryant and Candice Bryant, PART is a non-profit, professional-community theatre. The sister team comes from a theatrical family, so they were, as the saying goes, basically born in a trunk. Their parents met doing theatre at the Greenville Little Theatre, and their mother ran a dance studio in the area for over 50 years. Their grandfather did plays with Joanne Woodward during her time in Greenville, and their three brothers have also performed and taught at many local theatres and schools.
Both Kimilee and Candice have performed extensively in Greenville and the surrounding area, and they actively teach in several schools and universities. They are members of SAG/AFTRA and AEA, the screen and stage actors' unions, and have worked in NY, LA, across the country, and around the world. However, Upstate SC is home and the place that gave them the love and training to succeed in such ventures. Their goal now is to be able to give back to the community that gave so much to them.
