The theater’s production of their musical Southern Boys will be held at the Cannon Street Arts Center, Fri. Oct. 4 and Sat. Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sun. Oct. 6 at 3 p.m.
Southern Boys is a production created by Kathy D. Harrison that follows the lives of a group of African-American boys during Reconstruction following the Civil War who make a pact to move north to find a life outside of sharecropping.
“I want to share this story with Charleston’s theater-going community as well as the younger generation studying American social and current events,” said Charleston Black Theatre founder Yvonne Broaddus on their website.
Tickets start at $22 for students 12-18, and $37 for adults. Tickets may be purchased here.
The theater also has a GoFundMe page and is accepting donations to help fund this production.
