Charleston Stage's Season Auditions
For Roles in the 2014-2015 Season at the Historic Dock Street Theatre

Auditions for our 2014-2015 season were held on May 4, 2014. All casting is complete and all offers have been given. More information about our 2015-2016 season auditions will be posted in March 2015.

Charleston Stage welcomes community actors (Grades 9 through adult) to audition for Charleston Stage MainStage and Family Series shows for next season. Last season more than 90 roles were played by members from the Charleston Community. Many of these actors performed with Charleston Stage for the first time. While Charleston Stage has a Resident Professional Acting Company and employs guest actors, community actors make up a large portion of our acting company each season, playing leading, as well as, supporting roles. Charleston Stage has a colorblind casting policy. Roles in all productions are available to anyone regardless of race.
