BareStage is a new, emerging theatre company committed to creating quality, life-changing theatre, at an affordable price. Artistic Director, David McLaughlin and Executive Director Elissa Horrell have produced, directed, taught, and performed in hundreds of shows. Their story as friends began at auditions for Little Shop of Horrors at Flowertown Players, and ultimately inspired them to start their own company to: “…show Charleston what theatre is really about: community. We believe that the beauty of theatre is found in the stories we tell and the relationships we create. Relationships not just with our fellow cast and crew, but with our audience and the communities we live in. Our goal is to create shows that focus on talent, not elaborate sets, and to prove an experience that is affordable for everyone.”
South of Broadway Theatre Company has been a center for the arts in greater Charleston since 2004 with its home in trendy Park Circle. We are a non-profit organization seeking to cultivate talent, uplift our community and to illuminate the human experience through theatre.

“We are delighted to partner with Bare Stage which shares our theatrical goals and who we have long admired and worked with.” – Mary Gould, Founding Artistic Director, South of Broadway Theatre Compan
