Local children’s theater performs Halloween favorite

Local News

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCBD) – The Charleston Performing Arts Center presents the James Island Fall Festival on October 21st from 5 PM – 9 PM. The event was delayed due to Hurricane Florence in September.

The event is a fundraiser to benefit the James Island Junior Theater, a youth program by Charleston Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for children 11 and under and $20 for adults.

This event is a perfect introduction to Fall for the entire family. Not only will there be food, drinks, and
football on the big screen, but guests will enjoy live entertainment by Southbound 17, a special
performance by the cast of The Addams Family, a bounce house, face painting, and a silent auction benefiting JIJT’s 2018-19 season.
 
For the past year, the James Island Junior Theater has enriched the lives of young performers from the
immediate community, as well as the greater Charleston area. JIJT provides young performers the
opportunity to “L.E.A.P. (Learn, Experiment, Apply, Perform) into the spotlight”. Our cast members don’t
just learn to sing and dance, but they embark on a learning and growing experience that helps to build
life-long skills: patience, teamwork, attention to detail, creative thinking, public speaking, confidence,
and many more. The impact it has made on the students has been astounding.
 
As JIJT enters our second season, we are excited to produce and perform junior versions of three
fantastic shows: The Addams Family, Guys and Dolls, and Shrek. Since we are a non-profit organization, all of the rights to the shows, costumes, sets and other elements that go into putting these on for our community can only happen through volunteering and donations! The goal is to raise $10,000 that will ensure the future success of the James Island Junior Theater and the services provided to the community by C-PAC.
