Mission Statement

Charleston Playhouse is Charleston’s first Professional Equity Theatre Company, bringing its audiences the highest standard of theatre productions. As a nonprofit organization, our mission is to make a meaningful impact on the community by entertaining through purposeful storytelling, while supporting the Charleston economy and offering educational opportunities for the next generation of theatre professionals. Our intention is to advocate for the arts and the Artists in our community.


Vision Statement

The vision of Charleston Playhouse includes producing a full Mainstage Season, a Broadway Concert Series featuring A-List Broadway performers, and a Broadway Cabaret Series. Featuring Broadway actors, members of *Actors’ Equity Association, and professional local talent, Charleston Playhouse is here to deliver a top-of-the-line theatre experience, while also giving local professionals the opportunity to further their careers. 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.

* Actors’ Equity Association is the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.
