Winner of the 2015 North Carolina Theatre Conference Constance Welsh Theatre for Youth Award

Student Theatre Guild

Theatre Charlotte's Student Theatre Guild provides an outstanding theatre opportunity to high school and college students selected through an audition process. The summer intensive provides a professional-level summer stock experience. The group rehearses for 9 days in July and then presents 7 performances of a major Broadway musical over 2 weekends on the Theatre Charlotte stage. If selected through the audition process, there is no fee to participate. Past productions include Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Sweet Charity, Hairspray, The Drowsy Chaperone, Cry-Baby, Disaster! the Musical, and Young Frankenstein.


For 3 weeks in the summer, more than 30 TCjr participants, age 9-14, work with professional directors, choreographers, designers, technicians and performers experiencing and creating musical theatre. In addition to these professionals, college students studying the performing arts, along with exceptional high school students, will work alongside these young people, sharing their knowledge and experience, rehearsing and performing a professional-level summer stock production to be presented on the Theatre Charlotte stage. Past TCjr presentations of Willy Wonka, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Seussical, and Beauty and the Beast were all smash hits!
