Footlight Players presents: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

The Footlight Players opens its 84th season with “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” a musical based on the 1988 film of the same name. “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” centers around two competing con men, living on the French Riviera. At first, the suave and experienced Lawrence Jameson takes the rookie con man, Freddy, under his wing. But soon Freddy is successful enough that he tries to compete directly with Lawrence. The competition comes to a peak when they agree that the first con man to extract $50,000 from the female heiress, Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town forever.

Directed by Robin Burke with musical direction by Inga Agrest, the performance runs Aug. 7-23 at the historic Footlight Players, 20 Queen St. in Charleston.

Tickets are $30 for adults; $27 for seniors; $20 for students. For musicals, tickets are $35 for adults; $32 for seniors/military and $25 for students. Order tickets online at footlightplayers.net or by calling the box office at 843-722-4487. Subscription packages are available; call 843-722-4487.

The Flowertown Players present: West Side Story

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments.

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

Threshold Repertory Theatre presents: The Taming of the Shrew

Threshold Repertory Theatre’s 4th annual Summer Shakespeare Workshop is the timely comedy,
The Taming of the Shrew. New director to Threshold Rep, John Bryan has set this controversial
classic in the American Southeast, on the brink of World War II. “Amid this quick-paced, quickwitted
ballyhoo of slapstick and puns arise very real and very timely questions about gender
roles and the trust we place in them,” explains Bryan.
Threshold Rep’s Summer Shakespeare workshop brings amateur and experienced Shakespearian
actors and directors together for educational classes and creates a full production of one of the
Bard’s great masterpieces. With exceptional teachers such as Chris Marino, co-founder of
Tafferty Punk Theatre in Washington, DC and Brendan Kelly, Artistic Director our actors hone in
on their craft and bring Shakespeare’s words to life.
The unyielding, Katherina is feverishly pursued by Petruchio, nobleman of Verona. The question
is…can she been tamed?
