Productions are thought-provoking about current issues and acting/directing/technical crew exemplary! Ticket prices are a great value for this intimate black box venue.

Threshold Rep pushes the envelope in everything it does. No "safe" productions here. Charleston is lucky to have such a cutting-edge theater group.

I am blown away at the level of talent the Threshold Repertory Theatre attracts! Each performance I have seen has showcased professional level thespians you would expect to find in New York or London. And in its black box theater, you always feel an intimate environment that pulls you into every scene. I look forward to future performances!!

I do not normally comment on performances I have attended, however, I am compelled to complement playwrights Thomas and Judy Heath for Perfectly Normal People that my wife and I saw Saturday evening, March 22nd, at the Threshold Preparatory Theatre. This script was highly entertaining and the actors and actresses in the performance hit a home run in my opinion. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in seeing a truly wonderful comedy, yet with a message for everyone, see Perfectly Normal People.

Hard to believe the talent at such a small, intimate theater. Acting is wonderful on a consistent basis as are the plays selected. Atmosphere is cozy and those who help out are very friendly. Actors/actresses make themselves available after performances. Ticket prices are beyond reasonable. Love the place.

By far, one the most entertaining theaters in Charleston. From their intimate atmosphere to their choice of productions to the talented cast, every play is a treat. Since discovering Threshold, we have not missed a single play.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the theater, it was very comfortable. The staff are incredibly friendly and fun. I was treated like a regular on my first visit. It was refreshing to have a drink of wine before the show, which they offer. It was very pleasing. I am excited to go see more shows at this theater.

Incredible level of professionalism.The choice of productions is daunting; yet casting,directing and production values are never compromised. Excellent theater on any scale of comparison.

Artistic director Pam Galle is a force of nature ,striving for perfection which she seldom fails to achieve.

I have seen several shows at the Threshold and appreciate its diversity and professionalism. It is the best theater in Charleston, which is due to its acting, directing and production values. The consistency in each performance displays a commitment to excellence which makes this theater a singular experience in a city that deserves sophisticated theater. I lived in NYC and was an avid off Broadway theater supporter. Threshold represents the same level of professionalism .
I look forward to their new season.

I have seen four shows at the Threshold Rep, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience each time! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Even though it is a relatively small theater, the space is always creatively used-the stage and seating areas tend to change often to fit the play being performed. For a fun, affordable evening out, I would highly recommend this theater!

High, high quality. Every show we have seen at Threshold Rep has been top notch, the acting, staging, all of it. My husband is from the former Soviet Union and has seen more versions of Chekhov's Three Sisters than he can count; yet, within minutes of watching Threshold's adaptation, he forgot he was watching Americans, forgot he was hearing the play in English and became utterly absorbed. Keep producing great work!

Threshold Rep Theatre is a relatively new community theatre in Charleston. I have now seen more than nine shows there. The performances are excellent with talented actors and knowledgeable directors representing a wide range of theatre.. The venue is small (90 - 100) so that there is a desirable closeness to the action. The price is always reasonable, sometimes well below many other local theatres. The location is very handy and accessible with parking and restaurants nearby. All things considered, Threshold represents one of the best theatre experiences in Charleston
