What We Do
URGENT AND TIMELY IMPACT:
Theatre Charlotte's auditorium was severely damaged in a electrical fire on December 28, 2020. We’ve been hit pretty hard by 2020, but physical damage to our physical home is something we simply could not have expected.
We’re still taking inventory of what we lost. But we do know one thing: to find ourselves again, we need your support. Every dollar raised will help Theatre Charlotte survive this crisis. Your donations will make it possible for us to continue providing outstanding theatre opportunities for you and your Theatre Charlotte family.
Please consider making a financial donation through the donation link of this profile. If you want to volunteer your time, professional services or other efforts to rebuild, please take a few minutes to let us know in the volunteer opportunity section below.
Thank you for your generosity!
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 ages and experience to be a part of our productions and learn from our professional directors, designers, and staff.
Theatre Charlotte has a long history of excellent productions and outstanding theatre opportunities. Since its founding in 1927 as the Charlotte Drama League, the theatre has produced a season of plays every single year. In 1941, the theatre moved into its new home at 501 Queens Road in the heart of historic Myers Park and has been housed there ever since. Over time, Theatre Charlotte has thrived, welcoming more than half a million theatre-goers to more than 3,000 performances.
Theatre Charlotte is proud of our heritage and excited about our future!
