Summer Stock

We are thrilled to establish the first Summer Stock in Charleston, SC!

Summer Stock is a concept and theatre term that started in the early 1900s. "Summer Stock" provides a training ground for actors, and inexpensive entertainment for vacationers in popular tourist destinations, during the summer months.

 

CACC's Creative Team seeks to grow its Summer Stock program into a regional destination for aspiring young actors, singers, and dancers who want to gain experience and share their talents on stage with tourists (and locals!) of Charleston! 

Our inaugural Summer Stock includes five NYC Guest Artists who will share their talents and teaching gifts with youth to adults. The first annual CACC Summer Stock includes three weeks of unique master classes in every aspect of theatre, production rehearsals that are educational and of a professional-level, and eight performances of the original music revue, Broadway Rewind

a la Carte Classes

We have taken into consideration that not everyone can commit to the entire five-week Summer Stock experience. So, we have created an 'a la carte' option for classes! Pay for one master class or two. . . it's all up to you!
