Mission and History

signIn 2001, Charlie and Angie Flynn-McIver, a couple with roots in North Carolina, moved from New York City to found NC Stage.  We have been producing professional theatre in Asheville for over 14 years!

We are dedicated to creating theatre that is as consequential as it is entertaining.  Our dedication to artistic excellence and exploration includes our Education programming and Community Engagement

We are proud to be the originators of the Catalyst Series, a program that financially supports other local arts organizations that do not yet have their own production space.

NC Stage is a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit.


NC Stage has been voted best local theatre 10 out of the past 11 years in the Mountain Xpress Best of WNC Poll. NC Stage was also recently awarded the American Theatre Wing National Theatre Company Grant.

North Carolina Stage Company is a professional theatre in downtown Asheville that works with members of Actors’ Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States, under a Small Professional Theatre Tier 4 Contract.
