The South Carolina Shakespeare Company is but one component of a vibrant arts community in the Midlands of South Carolina. We are pleased to call Columbia home and delighted to support our sister theatres and acting companies in the surrounding area.
On the national level, we are a proud member of the Shakespeare Theatre Association. The Shakespeare Theatre Association (STA) was established to provide a forum for the artistic, managerial, educational leadership for theaters primarily involved with the production of the works of William Shakespeare; to discuss issues and methods of work; to share resources and information; and to act as an advocate for Shakespearean productions and training.
