…all at the same time!
The Footlight Players and The Hat Ladies are in high fashion once again, in conjunction with the play, Five Women Wearing the Same Dress. Here is how the fundraiser works:
*You design a dress. It could be one to wear to the store, the finest restaurant, the theater, the prom, a wedding, etc. It could be for an adult or for a child.
*You determine the cost of YOUR dress.
*You determine what percentage of your sale price you will donate to The Footlight Players (Ex: Dress price =$150, donate 30% to Footlight then you get $105 and Footlight gets $45 per dress).
*Your dress will hang in the Lobby of The Theater for the entire run of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress. (March 11-28, 2010). During this time, 5 patrons will have the opportunity to buy your dress.
*You then make five dresses of this design, custom fitting it for each buyer.

What is this?
This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.
How does this work?
There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to
