Sottile_Theatre_t600 Details: The historic Sottile Theatre in the heart of downtown Charleston will serve as our primary venue.  The Sottile (sö til’ ë) is located just around the corner from the Cato Center that houses the Department of Theatre and Dance and the Simons Center for the Arts that contains the Emmett Robinson Theatre.  A block from the Cato Center is the Chapel Theatre. All the venues for performances, auditions and workshops will be just a short walk from each other.

The DASH (ride for free) Shuttle Service is available for travel around downtown and to-and-from hotels.   Parking in Charleston is at a premium, so plan ahead for personal cars, school vans and buses.

Special thanks to our sponsors!
