Dock Street Theatre


category : Theatres
The first theatre in the colonies, Dock Street opened in 1736 and was lost in the fire of 1740. The Planters Hotel opened on the site in 1809 and thrived until the 1860s, when it was damaged during the war and left derelict. The preservation of the hotel in the mid 1930s included a reconstructed theatre. The theatre has been in constant use since 1937 and is a major venue for Spoleto Festival USA each spring. Pre-booked tours are arranged when possible.
