  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Threshold Repertory Theatre
    "Threshold creates huge musicals in a little theater," read the headline of a recent Charleston City Paper profile of Threshold Repertory Theatre. Audiences will recognize many of the works the company performs from Broadway and beyond, but in its 100-seat black-box theater, even the splashiest showpieces take on new intimacy. ?What happens in this space is that the audience seriously begins to blend with the story," previous artistic director Pamela Nichols Galle told the City Paper. Threshold gives patrons direct access to the brains and talents of directors, playwrights, and actors. Before or after a show, guests can get into the theatrical spirit by enjoying beer, wine and snacks from the box office's concession stand.

As conductor Stuart Malina dishes out Morse code instructions with his baton, singers belt the familiar lyrics of songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein classics, including The King & I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music.
