Professional Equity Theater is Coming to Charleston

Charleston Playhouse is the Holy City’s first professional equity theatre company, bringing its audiences the highest standard of theatre productions. 

The Playhouse will produce a full mainstage season, a Broadway concert series featuring A-List Broadway performers, and a Broadway cabaret series. It will feature Broadway actors, members of *Actors’ Equity Association, and professional local talent. We will be compensating every artist with a competitive weekly salary and offering credit toward membership into *Actors’ Equity Association, a first for Charleston. We will also offer internships and Masterclasses for the next generation of theatre professionals through our partnership with College of Charleston’s Department of Theatre and Dance. Our goal is to make Charleston a year-round destination for professional entertainment for locals and tourists to enjoy.

Please come and hear more about their incredible mission and the Broadway caliber, large-scale productions they will be bringing to our community, featuring Broadway actors as well as finally giving local professionals an opportunity to make a living here in Charleston.

When: Wednesday, February 16, 2022, 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Where: Oyster Catcher Community Center

They will be in residence at the newly renovated Sottile Theatre on King Street and they have overwhelming support from our community and Advisory Committee members whose names you may recognize (see below). 

Please RSVP to Kpeterson@hearst.com by February 4, 2022. 

If you do not live on Seabrook, once you have RSVP’d, I will secure a gate pass for you to attend.

We hope to see you there!
