Cultural Arts Center Charleston


This looks like such a cool theatre with some pretty amazing performances! It is so important to support the arts, which is why I love attending performances of both live productions and films. I thought I would contribute my latest independent movie favorite for anyone else here who enjoys to stay home and watch something every once in a while. It is called Empathy, Inc. and it is about a virtual reality startup that has more going on than what meets the eye, which the main character Joel must figure out and navigate through himself. I really enjoyed how this film kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish with its suspenseful atmosphere and dark tone, I never knew what was going to happen next! I would definitely recommend, and if anyone is interested it is out on VOD now.
Here's a little something to get your Monday swingin'! Enjoy the great Hazel Scott in The Heat's On (1943).

Guthrie Theater: A Message From Artistic Director Joseph Haj

We could not have crafted a better message to address our community of patrons, Take care of one another and remember, like the classic song says, “We’ll meet again”!

Enjoy this heartfelt video about the future of theater and why nothing can replace the centuries-old tradition of gathering together.

Summer Camp registration is now live and we're Bringing Broadway To You!!!

CACC would like to give special recognition to one of our youth students, Rosie Sandin, for her exceptional participation, etiquette, attendance and focus during our distance learning classes. Rosie is always present, prepared and most eager to learn, no matter the subject or exercise!

Distance Learning has been a challenge for everyone, both students, parents and teachers. The learning process takes a great deal of focus and patience that many do not realize. Students are not only challenged by an isolated learning environment that is often viewed on a small device, but their focus has to compete with constant and unpredictable distractions, i.e.: inconsistencies with Wifi, audio not matching the video, Zoom technical issues, other attendees not being muted or dropping in and out of meetings, etc. It's tough, even for adults!

CACC transitioned our Broadway Theater Workshop on March 17, nearly two months ago. Since then, our students have consistently attended classes two, now three days, each week with lessons in acting, dance and voice. We are proud of all of our students who have had to face this transition but wanted to give special attention to Rosie for her dedication and focus! Thank you Rosie for being extra special!

We are thrilled to announce that EIGHT of our CACC Youth Theatre kids have been accepted into Charleston County School of the Arts! Ava Davis, Marley Mendes, Truitt McGuire, Hadley McAdams, Milly Burt, Harper Whittington, Ali Wager and Hunter Griffin. Congratulations to all of you! We are so proud of each and every one of you.

We are especially proud that four of our students were accepted as Vocal Majors; Ava Davis, Marley Mendes, Hadley McAdams and Truitt McGuire. There were only 10 female vocalists selected out of over 500 who auditioned. CACC filled nearly half of those slots! We have had the pleasure of training and directing these girls over the past three to five years and have watched them ABSOLUTELY blossom!

We'd like to share an adorable story that has become one of our favorites. It was after the very first audition of Truitt's for the James Island Junior Theatre. When her parents asked her how it went, she replied, "Mom, Dad, I've found my people". Too cute! 😆

Hats off to you ALL! Your journey is just beginning. Hold tight to your dreams and aspirations. After all, dreaming is a form of planning!

Be safe and be well!

What a horrifically sad loss of one of our country’s finest dance companies and learning centers. Folks, this will continue to happen if we do not our part in keeping their doors open, this certainly includes our very small nonprofit who has struggled from day one.

CACC has solely survived from our own revenue and personal funding from our two directors, Scott and Kirk Pfeiffer. We have never received federal funding or grant assistance. We have managed to produce over 30 musicals under these conditions while paying overhead, insurance, materials for set and costuming, as well as the majority of our actors, everyone except our directors. CACC has no official employees. Our directors have volunteered and funded the organization from the start.

We now urge you to help prevent us from closing our doors which would include disappointing many kids who rely on CACC’s programming to feed their spirit and keep their dreams a reality. Now is the time to make your donation to Charleston Performing Arts Center (dba Cultural Arts Center Charleston). With a heavy heart and with gratitude for forty-six years on our city’s artistic landscape, today we announce that the Lou Conte Dance Studio will be closed indefinitely. The closure is a direct result of the COVID-19 public health crisis.
