The Footlight Players will kick off its 84th season with “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” a musical comedy following the shenanigans of two con men traveling by train to a small town in France. The play opens Aug. 7 at the historic Footlight Players Theatre, 20 Queen St. in Charleston.
“I wanted a season filled with fun. So this, our 84th, is rich with comedy and a few classic stories that always entertain,” said Don Brandenburg, artistic director at Footlight. “It’s our hope that theater lovers will choose to become a part of our Footlight family as we celebrate 84 years of continuous theater excellence.”
