3min 21sec : Backstage at the Dock Street Theatre

The Historic Dock Street Theatre is a beautiful performance venue located in the French Quarter of downtown Charleston, SC.

The theatre serves as a performance space for a variety of arts and cultural institutions, including the Spoleto Festival USA.

We toured the theatre with Managing Director Christopher Parham, who spoke with us about the history of the space, its ghostly inhabitants, and the building's recent renovations.
