Charleston Stage Seasonal Auditions
(For Roles In Charleston Stage’s 2018-19 Season Beginning In September 2018)

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!

Seasonal Auditions for our 2018-19 season were held on April 9th and casting is now closed. We will post new information about our Seasonal Auditions for our 2019-20 season in February 2019.





Performance Troupe

Performance Troupe is the premiere student performance group at Charleston Stage. It is geared towards our most advanced, dedicated and experienced students. We will have three separate Troupe classes this year--Grades 4-5, Grades 6-7, and Grades 8-9. These classes meet once a week during the school year. Admission is by audition only. Students in Troupe are also given the opportunity to audition for Charleston Stage’s MainStage and Family Series productions and work on performance pieces weekly in class.

Auditions for our 2018-19 Performance Troupe were held on April 16th. We will post new information about our Performance Troupe Auditions for our 2019-20 season in March 2019.
