The Future is Calling

After 45 years of producing new and existing works that entertain, educate, and engage our community, we're elated to share that we have a new Artistic leader who's committed to continue telling the important stories from our repertoire, but also expanding the stories we tell so that our entire community can see themselves reflected in the art on this stage. New Artistic Director Richard Thompson will bring a fresh perspective to the programming you already love and care about. Please help us continue to provide life-changing and enriching theatrical experiences for adults and students alike by contributing today! Your gift today ensures we thrive for another 45 years!
