As the theatre company in residence at the Woolfe Street Playhouse, our aim is to bring lesser known classics and new works to life in a unique environment: The Village Rep creates theatre that breaks down the barriers between the performer and the audience. We create for our community, from within our community, working with Charleston's local ensemble of actors and artists.
Fifteen years ago Charleston’s theater scene primarily consisted of two community theater companies presenting traditional plays and musicals in large size venues. Very few lesser known dramas or musicals were presented and safe fare was the norm. Today, the Village Repertory Co. regularly broadens the cultural arts scene with bold productions of challenging new and established works.
There are now more than 15 theatre companies of all shapes and sizes in Charleston. The Village Rep is proud to have been a leader in raising the bar on theatrical diversity, inventive programming and artistic excellence in our community.
Under the leadership of founding Artistic Director Keely Enright and Managing Director Dave Reinwald, the company has built an impeccable reputation for consistent theatrical excellence and nuanced cannon of work that is like no other in the community.
