From the blonde ambition in Legally Blonde the Musical, to the Lowcountry mystery of Edgar Allan Poe in Nevermore, to Sojourner Truth's journey to freedom in A Woman Called Truth, to the classic toe-tapping melodies of Anything Goes, Charleston Stage has an amazing lineup of nine plays and musicals as they celebrate the Thirty-fifth Anniversary Season at the historic Dock Street Theatre.

Over 150 professional actors, singers, dancers, musicians and technicians will join the celebration, lighting up the Historic Dock Street Theatre stage for one of the most dazzling professional seasons ever. With the members of Charleston Stage's Professional Resident Acting Company, Professional Guest Equity Actors from New York, joined by the finest talent in the Lowcountry, Charleston Stage continues to raise the bar for full-scale professional theatre in Charleston - providing this great city the great theatre it deserves.

In addition to over 160 performances this season, Charleston Stage continues its longtime commitment to education and young people. More than 12,000 Lowcountry youth will take part in Charleston Stage's enriching education programs, where young performers and technicians have the opportunity to learn their craft from working professionals in a true professional theatre setting.
