Known for its quality productions and commitment to excellence, education and diversity, the Charleston Stage Company is certainly one of the highlights of living in Charleston, West Virginia.
With its mission to performing high quality, innovative theatre production in the state, the organization was founded based on these four goals:
- To perform experimental and avant-garde plays, new dramatic works, and American and European classic dramas;
- To bring theatre to the community through educational and artistic outreach programs;
- To sponsor and/or facilitate new and exciting touring companies in West Virginia; and
- To become a truly multi-cultural theatre company through an aggressive policy of open casting and involvement of minority artists.
Aside from theatre performances, the stage company also organize and sponsor art activities is open to participants of all ages, minority group and economic standing. Not only does the troupe seek to involve the community in its programs, it has also grown to become a part of Charleston’s cultural development.
This year, the CSC is staging Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare, The Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris (Adapted by Joe Montello), and Doubt by John Patrick Shanley. West Virginia: Words & Music will be performed at the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences. All performances of the CSC happens at the WVSC Capitol Center Theatre in Summers street, unless otherwise noted.
