What We Do
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!
