Charleston's oldest community theatre company is Footlight Players, on Queen Street at Philadelphia Alley. 83 years with the lowest ticket prices in town, this non-equity, non-profit has launched more actors and theatre professionals than anywhere else.

Nice evening, excellent talent for a local theater and not a bad seat in the house. We bought last minute tickets to "Death Trap" and really enjoyed the evening. I will be back.

Charleston's oldest volunteer community theater that has served as the launch pad for many regional actors/actresses and theater techs...with plays running three successive weekends, multiple times a year at a very fair price, and theater school for kids or adults, a very enjoyable experience that isn't perfect but always entertains. Season tickets for locals, or individual tickets for anyone. In... More

I enjoy the plays performed at the footlight theater because I never know what I am getting myself in for. There is no bad theater production. I love them all.

Loved the show, not the musical we have seen before but more down to earth. The production was excellent and the music so memorable, really enjoyed the evening.

Really is more than a community theater. Acting top class and ditto props, wardrobe. First class theater and wonderful feel in the actual theater.

We saw the political satire called November. We ordered tickets on line and picked them up at will call which made it easy. It is worth going if you enjoy local theaters. We laughed a lot.

Something fun to do on a Sunday afternoon in Charleston. We have attended three performances, all comedies. It's great fun and a good way to support the local people.

I've attended performances several times over 20+ years at this theatre and have always had a gret experience. The location is excellent, just a block away from the crowded dining and tourist areas. Our recent attendance was part of their "late night series" so the play began at 9PM. This allowed for a very relaxing evening of dinner and a... More
