Thanks for the shoutout Erica regarding our move but I feel I need to correct some inaccuracies in your comments. The Village Repertory Co is a professional theatre arts organization not a community theater. That might not seem like a big deal to you but for the last ten of our twelve seasons we have dedicated a large slice of our yearly budget to paying our directors, our designers, our crew and our actors. This is no small feat in this economy and in this city.
Also your comments about our renovations happening in a matter of months with very little funding is misleading. We have spent the last 2 years working on this move from our founding home in Mt Pleasant to the former Meddin Bros meat packing warehouse on Woolfe Street. With the help of the Donnelley Foundation we commissioned a feasibility study in the fall of 2010 to help us examine and determine the best steps towards expanding our organization. The results of that study were released in early 2011 and we began a search for a new home at that time. In the last 18 months we have raised over $325,000.00 of the $500,000.00 needed to complete the first phase of renovations. We hired Billy Huey's firm and Chastain Construction, together we worked for A YEAR on the design phase, permitting, BAR approval and the construction. We removed a second floor and installed all new steel beams, sprinkler systems,new heating and air, new floors, new restrooms, new office, a lobby and the mainstage theater. While we planned to move into the new Woolfe Street Playhouse in mid October, permitting and construction delays pushed us back to mid December. Our entire season will be presented with the first production, Love, Loss and What I Wore, moved from it's original October slot to early May. We are thrilled to be presenting the regional premiere of The Whipping Man playing now through March 16th. We would love to have you come by and see the Playhouse and invite you and all the City Paper readers to see The Whipping Man during it's run.

Thanks for spreading the word. Soundwave is a great comic shop with an unbelievable group of customers. They really become like family. I've been so fortunate to meet such a great group of people.

Thanks for recognizing a great shop. I understand advertising is everything in business but I can seriouslly tell you that there's no better comic shop than Soundwave.
There's comic/action figure/artwork auctions. Themed costumed events. Parties. Game Nights. And a host of other regularly scheduled events.
Soundwave is truly a Community Hang Out. We're a family and it's the only one of its kind in ALL of the Lowcountry. You won't get cake, food/beverages and costume contest on a random Saturday night at other comic shops. You won't see othe comic shops sponsoring a charitable Star Trek movie theater event. Other comic shops don't offer the level of customer service and appreciation that Soundwave provides.
Soundwave is a safe haven for comic/movie/music nerds of all stripes here in the Lowcountry. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!
