CAST set to close after Gruesome Playground Injuries

Posted By on Fri, Jun 6, 2014 at 8:07 PM

Last year, Creative Loafing's readers named Carolina Actors Studio Theatre Best Theater Company in our annual Best of Charlotte issue. That honor, however, did little to save the cool little theater company in NoDa.

Earlier today, the folks with CAST announced on Facebook that Gruesome Playground Injuries would be the company's last production: "Due to economic strains that have challenged the theatre to keep its doors open for more than a year, the board reluctantly decided the organization cannot support another operating season."

From Angels in America

The most recent production at CAST, Angels in America, saw low attendance numbers - at least the night CL theater critic Perry Tannenbaum reviewed the show.

Tis a sad day in Charlotte's theater community.
