About The Guild

The Theatre Charlotte Student Theatre Guild is a city-wide theatre club. Its purpose is to provide outstanding theatre opportunities to teens throughout the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area. The Guild is governed by the teens themselves, with officers elected and members having input into the focus and direction of the club.

The Guild holds monthly meetings and organizes workshops, such as scene study, audition techniques, musical theatre master classes, movement, voice-overs, writing, directing, design and technical theatre. The Guild also ushers for Theatre Charlotte productions and volunteers for workdays and crews.

The Student Theatre Guild offers an intensive two-week summer camp, culminating in a production on the main stage of Theatre Charlotte. Past productions of Sweeny Todd, Cabaret, Pippin and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying received high praise.

Auditions for performing students and interviews for technical students are held each spring.

Book by Neil Simon

Produced for the Broadway Stage by Fryer, Carr and Harris

Recommended for all ages

Meet Charity, the girl who wants to be loved so much, that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through a variety of romances. This is a bright and sophisticated show in every sense. Cy Coleman has captured the rhythms and sounds, and Dorothy Fields the vernacular and fun of New York. Neil Simon has a particular talent for looking at the truly amusing side of life. It's a dancing show too, with great opportunity for use of dramatic movement. Wonderful musical numbers include Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, Too Many Tomorrows, There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This, I'm a Brass Band and Baby, Dream Your Dream.
