(For roles in Charleston Stage’s 2022-23 Season beginning in September 2022.)

Charleston Stage’s annual seasonal auditions are for members of the community interested in performing with Charleston Stage. Auditions are open to adults and high school students (rising Grades 9-12). While Charleston Stage has a Resident Professional Acting Company and employs guest actors, community actors make up a large portion of our acting company each season, playing leading, as well as, supporting roles. Charleston Stage has a colorblind casting policy. Roles in all productions are available to anyone regardless of race. Newcomers welcome!

Casting for our 2022-23 Season will be posted as needed. Please check back for future audition notices that may occur throughout the year. Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to receive the latest casting notices.
