Meeting monthly since the company’s founding in 1993, the Charter Group works with the Co-Artistic Directors to shape the company’s vision and select stories for production.  A group of talented theatre professionals as well as fanatical readers, the Charter members feel fortunate to be part of such a unique and dynamic company—“how lucky we are to read aloud, be read to, and then perform short stories on a regular basis!”
