  • Savannah Theatre
    First opening its doors in 1818, the Savannah Theatre hosts a plethora of productions upon its well-seasoned stage. June's shows include Country Star Revue, a two-hour mosey through the past half-century of country-music hits. The festive performance features the twangy tunes of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Rascal Flatts, and Taylor Swift, belted out by a septet of denim-clad vocalists accompanied by a live band and a chorus of tap-dancing cowboy hats. Alternatively, audiences may take a tuneful trip in the wayback machine with The Beat Goes On. From the Age of Aquarius through the age of acid-washed jeans, this musical visits the memorable melodies from the '60s, '70s, '80s, and a few spots outside the space-time continuum. Check the schedule for performance dates and times.

  • The Footlight Players
    It started small: in 1931, Lieutenant Commander Charles Russell Price directed a series of one-act plays at the Charleston Navy Yard. It was an unexpected success, and a year later, his band of amateur theater-makers were officially calling themselves The Footlight Players. The ensemble began performing at various spaces around town, and as their popularity grew, they became a local institution. Today, The Footlight Players uphold Price's vision by staging seasonal works ranging from comic musicals to dramatic plays. And while the company now has a permanent home in a historic cotton warehouse, their scrappy, let's-put-on-a-show attitude hasn't changed?local volunteers are always welcome to audition, lend an extra hand, or shake cottonseeds out of the stage curtains.

  • Charleston Ballet Theatre
    After training with companies including the Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and the Ballet Russe School, Don Cantwell returned to Charleston with a dream: to share the beauty of ballet with the local community. Decades later, he and Executive Artistic Director Patricia Cantwell continue to do just that at Charleston Ballet Theatre Center for Dance Education, training future generations of dancers and staging dazzling productions featuring guest artists and their own students. Their 2014 Nutcracker sold out two weeks before the production's opening night. Guest Artists including award winning stars Alexey Kulpin, Andres Angulo, Natalie Rossi, Danielle Troyano and others, are joined by Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr, whose innovative work has brought new life to classics including Alice in Wonderland, The Rite of Spring, and The Firebird.

  • Savannah Community Theater
    Anyone active in Savannah’s theatre community in the 70s and 80s would likely have encountered Tom Coleman III, a director who began his career at the Savannah Young People’s Theatre. He produced and directed more than 200 shows in the ensuing 35 years, culminating in the founding of the Savannah Community Theatre. The company often produces shows by local playwrights, along with a weekly, pirate-themed murder mystery dinner show.

  • ReptiDay
    Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.

  • Ballantyne Ballroom at the Ballantyne Hotel
    Part of the Savannah Dance Festival, Caliente showcases the seasoned rug cutters of Academy Ballroom International. Sambas, cha-chas, rumbas, and tangos raise the room temperature with sultry moves, quickening pulses and allowing haberdashers to easily reclaim stolen merchandise from melted snowmen. Colorful costumes further engage rapt eyes in onstage action with bright sequins and swirling folds. The show takes place at the cheery, greenery-filled Savannah Riverfront Marriott, with onsite restaurants and bars for a preshow or postshow drink to lubricate throats left dry from program-eating contests.
