Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The basic mission of Charleston Stage Company is to perform high quality and innovative theatre productions for West Virginia audiences. The founding goals of the organization are:

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.

Charleston Stage Company, through its quality productions, uncompromising standards, and commitment to diversity, education, and excellence, has personified the essence of a quality community arts organization.

Now in its twentieth season, Charleston Stage Company has continued to grow and evolve into a significant cultural presence in Charleston and the Kanawha Valley. The plays CSC produce and activities it sponsors continue to attract larger and more diverse audiences and participants. These performances and arts activities have served thousands of patrons, including children of all ages, senior citizens, minority groups, and economically disadvantaged audiences

Charleston Stage Company prides itself on its total involvement with the community it serves. It is the only theatre group in West Virginia ever to win the Southeastern Theatre Conference regional theatre festival (and it has accomplished that feat twice!) and it is the only theatre group in the Charleston area which is actively involved in arts education through its comprehensive summer arts camp for children ranging in age from 3 to 17.

Charleston Stage Company, because of its commitment to excellence in all areas of production and arts education activities, is one of the artistic "jewels" of the Kanawha Valley and the state of West Virginia and is now considered to be one of the finest community theatres in the nation.
