Thurs. April 24 marks the kickoff of Spoleto SCENE. And the party called Shakedown, which will be at Spoleto Festival Headquarters at 14 George St., will be an opportunity for both members and those interested in joining to learn more about the festival’s young supporters’ organization.
“Shakedown is to give a little more insight to the purpose of SCENE, like how our contributions support a performance each year — Dorrance Dance this year — the amazing impact of the Festival, the great benefits of a membership, in addition to having a great time with friends, old and new,” says SCENE steering committee member Stacy Huggins.
Each year the group of around 180 members gather to attend a variety of specific festival shows followed by SCENE-produced after-parties around town. Members also enjoy 20 percent discounts on tickets. Membership is $125 or $250 for a couple.
If you’re a 40-or-under arts enthusiast who wants ticket deals and invites to a handful of post-show parties, perhaps this is the group for you. Shakedown tickets are $20 general admission and free for SCENE members. To purchase event tickets, call (843) 724-1192 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
