Join Footlight for this Friday's opening of 'A Raisin in the Sun' (updated with review)

Update February 3: Charleston Scene has a review of The Footlight Players' production of 'A Raisin in the Sun' which will be performed through February 13th

From technical production, set design to acting, A Raisin in the Sun is running smoothly on all cylinders.

Hop over to the Scene to get the scoop.

First reporting: The Footlight Players are proud to announce the opening of 'A Raisin in the Sun' this Friday, January 28th at 8 p.m.

The intensely affecting drama chronicles how a financial windfall touches the lives of an African-American family living in Chicago in the late 50's. A simple desire for a home of their own becomes the touchstone of their integrity. This modern classic, remembered from the film starring Sidney Poitier and most recently, Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, is an inspiring, moving and poignant tale that includes themes relevant and as universal today as they were then. 

The perfomance schedule is as follows:

  • January 28, 29, February 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 at 8 p.m. 
  • February 6 & 13 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now at $25 for adults, $22 for seniors, $15 for students, and $10 for children 10 and under. To purchase tickets, call the Footlight Players Box Office at (843) 722-4487 or buy online.
