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!

SUMMER ON BROADWAY

CACC's Summer On Broadway program is unlike any summer camp or other NYC excursion program! It has inspired and motivated countless students, both youth and adults, to pursue musical theatre as a profession. This is our greatest testament! The Center's Artistic Director, Kirk Pfeiffer, has organized these incredible summer intensives for nearly 15 years. This year will be unforgettable!
Kirk's personal ties to the Broadway community make this experience unparalleled. He partners with master class teachers coordinates backstage access not typically available to the general public to provide technique building and experiences that are to our students' advantage.
Students will be challenged and inspired daily through multiple classes from Broadway actors and NYC industry professionals; access to 4 Broadway shows; and exciting and unforgettable activities around the city! This fully-chaperoned events is available to youth and adults, as well as, parents who wish to attend and adults interested in chaperoning.
Prices vary, but all include housing accomodations, roundtrip airfare, tickets to Broadway shows, and special activities planned for the group.
