For the last 3 years, donna scott productions has been the resident theatre company of the Charlotte Art League. What started as an accidental partnership in 2015 after a date fell through with another venue has become the most solid and reciprocal partnership of our 12 year history. We love creating alongside the artists of CAL and calling their space our home.  We’re proud to have met our goal in our campaign to support the Charlotte Art League after all they’ve done for us.
