The Dream of a Community Theater
The idea to establish a community theater in Georgetown, South Carolina was that of James and Ann Israel in January 1971. They met with other interested local citizens to plan such a theater group. The enthusiasm shown by those who attended the first organizational meetings resulted in the formation of The Swamp Fox Players, which presented two plays in 1971 at the old Winyah High School Auditorium.
The Dream Becomes Reality...
In ensuing years, performances were held in area hotels, restaurants, state parks, country clubs, and area high school auditoriums.
In 1982, the fledgling theater group purchased the old Strand Theater on Front Street in Georgetown. The Strand Theater was originally a movie theater built in 1941. It was closed as a movie theater in the early 1970’s. The Strand Theater and its marquee are icons of historic downtown Front Street.
It took more than a year to convert the old historic building into a place suitable for live theatrical performances. Since 1982, the Strand Theater as been the permanent home of the Swamp Fox Players. Prior to obtaining the Strand Theater, the Swamp Fox Players traveled to many area venues to perform.
Our slogan was “Have Stage Will Travel.” There has been much growth over the past 47 years.
Over the years, renovations and restoration have been done to the marquee. In 2005, a 1600 square foot addition was added to the rear of theater. The addition included a green room, several more dressing rooms, a rehearsal room and a workshop. In 2009, the lobby and balcony were redecorated, and carpet was installed in the theater. Also in 2009, a new main curtain and wall curtains were added.
In 2016 we unveiled our new theater seats and floor. We continue to improve and upgrade this wonderful old theater.
