“Entertaining Charlotte since 1989”
Upon formation as a professional theatre in 1989, Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte produced HOLY GHOSTS by North Carolina native Romulus Linney at the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte, NC. The company began with one full-time employee and one part-time employee. The following year, Actor’s Theatre began producing at the newly renovated Spirit Square complex in the 70-seat Acting Studio. Following 4 successful years in the Acting Studio, Actor’s Theatre was named a Resident Company of Spirit Square. By 1999, Actor’s Theatre moved in to the 195-seat Duke Energy Theatre and added another part-time employee, totaling two full-time employees and one part-time employee. The company continued producing in Spirit Square until 2004, when our new home at 650 East Stonewall Street was completed, which houses our 199-seat main stage theatre and administrative and production offices. Actor’s Theatre has received numerous awards and accolades over its 24-year history. We have been the recipient of “Theatre of the Year” honors from Creative Loafing nine of the last eleven years, as well as three-time recipients of “Theatre Company of the Year” honors from the Metrolina Theatre Association. We have also received two George A. Parides Professional Theatre Award (2001 and 2004) from the North Carolina Theatre Conference, and the 2013 "Best Performing Arts Company" from Charlotte Magazine's BOB Awards. These honors have cemented Actor’s Theatre’s place as the region’s most award-winning theatre company. We are proud to be members of the National New Play Network, Theatre Communications Group (the service organization of the American Professional Theatre), the North Carolina Theatre Conference, the Metrolina Theatre Association, the Charlotte Regional Visitors Association, and Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States. Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte is also pleased to be funded through the generous support of the Arts & Science Council of Charlotte/Mecklenburg, Inc. the North Carolina Arts Council and The Shubert Foundation.
