Woolfe Street Playhouse
Woolfe Street Playhouse is a fantastic example of adaptive reuse of a historic property. Originally built in 1914 as Consumer Ice Company, the Woolfe Street Playhouse spent 50 years as the home of the Meddin Bros. Meat Packing Co before closing doors in the early 1980s. The Village Repertory Company, a professional theatre arts organization headed by founding artistic director Keely Enright, and managing director Dave Reinwald, rescued the abandoned warehouse and spent more than 3 years raising funds to renovate the space. With the help of supportive patrons and benefactors they succeed in transforming the empty industrial complex into a vibrant performing arts facility for Charleston residents and visitors. Opened in December 2012 the Playhouse is home to the Village Rep's award winning theatrical productions, as well as many visiting artists, cultural organizations and private events throughout the year. Woolfe Street Playhouse invites you to experience the very best productions in the lowcountry in this unique and historic facility
