Now Playing

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.

It is my pleasure to invite you to our 2016-2017 season. Take a close look at what we have put together this year as our calendar, performance times and season packages have changed. For new season subscribers, I am pleased to point out that our Department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre and that we strive to consistently produce high quality productions for the College and greater Charleston community. As a season subscriber you can benefit from priority seating, flex ticketing and exchange privileges. Also, please review our donor categories and consider contribut- ing to your favorite area of the theatre through the “Sponsor a ….” category. The work of our students and faculty can be seen throughout the city and beyond, but we hope you will consider supporting our educational mission by becoming a season subscriber at the College of Charleston.
