HISTORY

ATLANTIC Stage was formed in 2008 by a group of theatre artists working at Coastal Carolina University and regionally.

In our first season, we had yet to find a permanent home and produced plays at the university and at a beachside resort (as a dinner theatre production). During the summer of 2009, we secured the 79th Ave Theatre, which we shared with university productions.

Our second season exposed growing audiences to the best quality, professional theatre money can buy in Myrtle Beach. Average attendance more than doubled, and our patrons’ enthusiastic and vocal support confirmed the area’s hunger for what we have to offer.

“Season Three brought in record houses for several shows. Attendence swelled to over 3,000 patrons with people coming in from Calabash, Little River, North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Conway, Surfside, Murrells Inlet, and Pawleys Island not to mention all of our “Snow Bird” friends from all over the U.S. and Canada.  Word is finally spreading about the great work going on here at Altantic Stage”
