Charleston Stage has announced a new, full, in-person 44th season. Premiering at the Dock Street Theatre, Pearl Theatre and West Ashley Theatre Center, Charleston Stage’s lineup includes Tony-, Olivier- and Grammy-winning plays and musicals.

The MainStage season will feature Bright Star, Blithe Spirit, Elf, Murder on the Orient Express, Black Pearl Sings! and Kinky Boots. The annual Family Series will feature Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, and Charlotte’s Web

Charleston Stage will also present a free community tour of Treasure Island Carolina. This retelling of the pirate classic, set along the Carolina coast, will tour parks, schools, and community centers as part of the CityStage initiative. No coordinator has been named to oversee the initiative yet, but the expanded Resident Professional Acting Company will be at the forefront and its members will serve as teachers for educational programming.
