Theatre charlotte mission 

Theatre Charlotte is a volunteer-based theatre company dedicated to creating outstanding theatre opportunities that are accessible and relevant to the people of the Charlotte region.

Theatre Charlotte is committed to making theatre relevant in the lives of more people by demonstrating that theatre engages, inspires and unites communities. Hundreds of volunteers get involved each year as actors, crew members, and ushers, while thousands participate as audience members. We encourage individuals of all age and experience to be a part of our productions and learn from our professional directors, designers, and staff.

Theatre Charlotte is proud of our heritage and excited about our future!
