  • 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.

  • 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.
