Frazier said the group tried to adapt and explored what options they could. Some time ago, Charleston Stage Company's board sent an "SOS letter" to various people associated with the theater company, asking for help.
"We tried to find sponsors," Frazier said. "But things didn't really materialize as much as we wanted. We didn't find people to sponsor us."
Without funding, the group's fate was more or less sealed.
Charleston Stage Company's board will meet one final time at 6 p.m. July 2 at Good News Mountaineer Garage, 221 Hale St. The public is invited to attend the meeting.
While it seems like this is the end of Charleston Stage Company, Frazier wasn't entirely sure what was going to happen at that last meeting.
He said, "What happens next is a better question for the president, Geoff Coward or some of the other members of the board, but basically, I think we're going to review it all again, look at our possible options, double check and see if we have any sort of 'Hail Mary' pass left to us."
A message was sent to Coward and calls were made to other members of the board, but no one had responded by press time.
If no solution to Charleston Stage Company's problems becomes available, Cline said it was heartbreaking that the theater company would close, but added that this would not be the end of theater in Charleston. She'd keep looking for roles that interest her.
"There are still people out there putting on quality productions," she said. "I'll be sad, but I have a lot of really good memories."
