Who We Are

Charleston Playhouse is Charleston’s first Professional Equity Musical Theatre Company, bringing its audiences the highest standard of musical theatre productions. Our mission is to make a meaningful impact on the community by educating and entertaining through purposeful storytelling; actively implementing the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in our programming choices, color-conscious casting decisions, and employment practices, while enhancing the hospitality and tourism industry of Charleston. 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 by compensating every artist with a competitive weekly salary and offering them credit toward union membership.

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

representing all voices

Charleston Playhouse supports the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in its programming choices, color-conscious casting decisions, and employment practices. Our artistic aim is to provide quality theatre experiences that tell stories with fidelity, and transparency. Certain stories require the ability to call upon the life experiences of performers who can faithfully portray a character’s individual ability, ethnic background, or cultural expression; when these instances arise, we will act with respect and consideration for all involved stakeholders. We choose programming reflective of our desire to share works with the public that represent the curiosities, interests, and narratives of our surrounding community. Our production casting is culturally diverse by design, bringing together a blend of collaborative humanity that benefits the company, audience, and the Charleston arts community. Charleston Playhouse values artistic leadership that is equitable for people of all backgrounds, actively seeking to partner with directors, choreographers, designers, and other theatre professionals from all walks of life. Employment opportunities within our company are inclusive of people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and cultures, creating an environment of acceptance and growth for all.
