The last time we checked in with the Village Playhouse, they had a lot of work to do on their new downtown space. But between all the moving and renovating, they’ve found time to schedule their new season. The new 17,000-square-foot building, located at 34 Woolfe St. and designed by Bill Huey, will feature a 250-seat cabaret space and will make second-stage productions and educational programs easier to host.

The upcoming season includes five main-stage productions, two main-stage special events, three Late Night in the Shop shows, and two Village Kids on Woolfe theater school productions. Among the main-stage productions, they’ll present the S.C. premiere of Nora Ephron’s Love, Loss and What I Wore (Oct. 11-28), The Man Who Came to Dinner (Dec. 7-29), Divine Sister (Jan. 17-Feb. 2), The Whipping Man (Feb. 22-March 16), and The Liar (April 5-27). In May, they’ll present the Southeastern premiere of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a piece that playfully weaves fact and fiction in a comedic discussion of America’s most infamous president.

For their longtime Mt. Pleasant fans, they’re offering a free ride over the bridge from the Brookgreen Town Center the first and second Thursday of each mainstage production. They’ll also host Stay and Play Nights, with a 6 p.m. happy hour before the final Thursday of each mainstage production. Find out more at  villageplayhouse.com.
