While Charleston Stage has a Resident 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. Newcomers are welcome!

Auditions for The Prom, Clue: On Stage, and Chicken & Biscuits are now closed. Auditions for The Trip to Bountiful and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical will be announced at a later date.




Charleston Stage is South Carolina's largest professional non-union theatre.

Our company is in residence at the Historic Dock Street Theatre and presents a Main Stage series of six full productions as well as a Family Series of two to three productions each season.  In addition, our CityStage program and other educational outreach programs provide opportunities for artists to engage with the community through theatre performance and education.
