Support the Footlight Players


As a nonprofit community theater, Footlight relies on generous donors. It takes a lot to produce seven mainstage shows a year and maintain a historic building in the heart of downtown Charleston.

Make a Donation


From ushers to costume designers and prop manager to sound operators, we have plenty of volunteer opportunities at Footlight. The only requirement? A love of live theater.


We value our corporate sponsors who provide much-needed cash sponsorships and in-kind donations that allow us to continue bringing quality community theater to Charleston. Become a season sponsor – we have a variety of sponsorship levels.
