The Talent Company is a non-profit organization committed to educating the youth of Stanly County and surrounding communities in all aspects of theater production while nurturing creative expression, self confidence, inclusion, teamwork and an appreciation for the arts.
This group was founded by youth backstage on the set of The Uwharrie Players' production of South Pacific in 2005. Their dream was to create an organization that would allow them to participate in all parts of a musical production including direction, set design, choreography, sound and lighting design. Founding youth members are Rebekah Asycue, Jordi Coats, Staley Story and Kristen Throneburg. The company's first show premiered on December 3, 2005 at the First Presbyterian Church of Albemarle, to a crowd of over two hundred people.
Over the years The Talent Company has grown into an authentic non-profit theater organization with the goal of performing high-quality musical and non-musical productions with an emphasis on student growth.
