Company Carolina

Company Carolina is the only student-run theater group at the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill that produces BOTH musicals and plays. Company runs on a
professional theater model, meaning that we are led not by presidents and
secretaries but by the positions found in professional theaters worldwide:
producers, technical directors, business managers, etc. We have been thriving on this
system since 1994.
