If the theater bug has bitten any of the kids in your Charleston home, then the Charleston Performing Arts Center is the place to take them. Not only does CPAC have an entire season of drama and comedy performed by grown up actors, there’s also a junior theater season. The Wizard of Oz is due to open on Friday, February 2nd and run through Sunday, February 11th. The entire production is played by actors ages 7 through 15. Tickets are $5 for kids 4 to 10; $10 for youth 11 to 17; and $20 for adults. Children three and younger are not admitted.
Charleston Home Owners and Their Kids Get Involved in Performing at CPAC
Kids from Charleston real estate can also get involved in the theater with classes at CPAC. Kids on Stage classes are taught by Scott Pfeiffer, director of the James Island Jr. Theater and executive director of CPAC. Class size is limited to 15 students, so each one gets plenty of individual attention and opportunities to work with the teacher. The class focuses on showing kids how to ace an audition, working on monologues, cold reads, and improvisation.
CPAC also welcomes adults living in Charleston to audition for performances, too. Hollywood: The Golden Age is the next show, and the theater is looking for male and female singers and dancers. Rehearsals begin February 5th. The show opens March 2nd and runs through April 8th. CPAC also needs volunteers for its shows. Local businesses should consider sponsoring performances and advertising in the playbill.
All Charleston home owners are invited to enjoy the performances at CPAC. Single tickets are $35 or $45 for VIP seating. For a special night out, consider the Dinner & a Show ticket. CPAC has partnered with Edison James Island to provide an excellent three-course meal for people going to see Hollywood: The Golden Age. Tickets are $60 for standard seating or $70 for VIP seating, which includes a drink and a snack at the theater itself. Season tickets are also available. See all the shows of the season at a great discount.
