The weather is starting to warm up already and hibernation season will be ending soon. This means that people will want to go OUT, and you should. We are certainly looking forward to get out and about downtown Charleston. Watching the seasons change here is sure to be the biggest event to watch for, but there’s plenty of performing arts events to watch for as well. Here’s just a few of the ones that we will definitely be attending, let us know where we might see you in the seats!
Supporting the arts in Charleston is a large goal of ours, but we can’t do it alone. Spread the word of what’s happening in the Holy City by sharing this blog post. See you at the theatre.
Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Bret has a brother who is autistic and read the book of Curious Incident years ago when it came out. So, we have a special place in our hearts for this play. The production on Broadway was lavish and incredibly high tech. Having attended a few productions at Charleston Stage we are very curious to see how they pull this production off. We are confident that the piece is so well written the story will shine. If you want to experience great theatre, go see this show.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Absolutely one of the funniest and most touching musicals of the 2000s. We are excited to catch the Footlight Players production at the Queens Street Playhouse. William Finn (Falsettos) wrote the score and features adult actor actors playing kids at a Spelling Bee. There is some audience participation, but lots of great singing and comedy. GO SEE IT!
