Charleston Stage's
2009 Summer Stage Musical Theatre Camp Presents

Based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows

Join my daughter and 66 young actors, singers and dancers in their own rousing rendition of this Broadway Musical Classic. Featuring gangster "guys" and their "dolls" and all their shenanigans in 1930's New York.

The children range in age from 2nd grade to 12 grade in High School.....

The Guys......

My daughter with the red flower in her hair, and friend, in their Cabana girl outfits.

The show ran 1 hour and 10 minutes..

The Dolls.....

The little chicken dancers...

These young kids only had three weeks to get ready for the show...

Dock Street Theatre
$20 Million Renovation Underway
The Historic Dock Street Theatre is currently closed for renovations. Charleston Stage plans to return to the Dock Street when it reopens in May 2010.
The Historic Dock Street Theatre, home to Charleston Stage for the past 30 years, is undergoing a $20 million restoration by the City of Charleston.
Renovations will provide new seats, restrooms and lobby facilities and state-of-the-art lighting to this historic structure. Three elevators are being added to make the building completely handicapped accessible.
Stabilization includes insuring that the structure is earthquake resistant.
The Historic Dock Street Theatre, built within the shell of the Planters Hotel (circa 1800), is built on the site of the original Dock Street Theatre, first theatre building in America.
LOCATION 135 Church Street Charleston, SC 29401
