In 2008 Atlantic Stage, a local professional theatre (SPT) and the CCU Department of Theatre entered into a partnership.  This partnership is designed to enhance the educational and professional opportunities for the students of the Department of Theatre, expand the cultural offerings of Coastal Carolina University and offer professional creative opportunities to the faculty of Coastal Carolina University. 

With the establishment of Bachelor of Fine Arts Programs in Musical Theatre, Acting, Physical Theatre and Design and Technology the department felt the students needed an opportunity for them to begin the transition from student to working professional.  As a program who is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre, we are required to have direct involvement of professional companies within the degree program.  The partnership between Coastal Carolina University and Atlantic Stage offers the direct involvement of BFA students with a professional theatre during the academic year. 

The purpose of Atlantic Stage is to enhance the cultural landscape of the Grand Strand by providing quality theatrical productions of classical, contemporary and new works that are entertaining and enlightening. Atlantic Stage is an ensemble of professional resident artists committed to artistic excellence, community enrichment, and educational outreach.

The intention of this agreement is to mutually promote professional theatre development while providing opportunities for.   Atlantic Stage and Coastal Carolina University Department of Theatre work closely together as partners giving our students the ability to work professionally even while remaining as students.
