Open Stage Door

Spoleto Festival USA is committed to being not just a significant event that happens in Charleston, but also a significant part of Charleston. To further this goal, Spoleto Festival USA works hard to make sure that all members of the community have the opportunity to be a part of the Spoleto experience.

Every year, the Open Stage Door program distributes complimentary tickets to a variety of Festival performances. Community-based organizations, social service agencies, and other non-profit groups serving underprivileged populations in the greater Charleston area are invited to request complimentary tickets by submitting a brief application describing their services.

Please check back in March/April for information about the 2018 Open Stage Door application and offerings.

Ansonborough House – Association for the Blind – Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina – Haven Family Development Center – Hope Lodge of Charleston – Humanities Foundation – Jenkins Institute for Children – My Sister’s House – Our Lady of Mercy Outreach – Summerville High School –  The Canterbury House – Trident Technical College – We are Family – Windwood Farm for Children

Open Stage Door is sponsored in part by Advance America, and by SCE&G, a SCANA company.
