I hope your February is off to a good start! With Valentine’s Day in mind, we’ve included some ideas for significant others, family, and friends. Giving tickets to see a theatrical production is just the way to tell someone you want to spend a quality evening together. Charleston’s selection of plays is endless, but here are a few to consider:
- Our Town: Feb. 1–2, 7–9, and 14–16 at 8 PM. There are also matinees starting at 3 PM on Feb. 10 and 17. Price: $25/adults, $22/seniors, $15/students. This Pulitzer Prize winning drama spans the history of a small New Hamphire town. Set in a 1930’s theater, Wilder uses the actions of the stage manager to create the town of Grover’s Corner for the audience. Using minimal props, this three-act production is performed at Footlight Players Theatre, located at 20 Queen Street in Downtown Charleston. footlightplayers.net
- Snow White: Sat., Feb. 9, at 2 and 5 PM. Also at 2 PM on Sunday, Feb. 10. Price: $24/adults, $12/children.
