Stage Door is a professional theater hosting world-class talent in front of and behind the curtain, and that will continue into the future. As we expand our professional productions and programming to the community throughout the year, we will be offering a much more diverse slate that will include:
- Mainstage in our theater when it’s safely possible
- Theater in the Park
- Virtual programming
- Children’s Theater, Camps, and Programming
- Other creative uses of our space to diversify our programming. IE: Local playwrights, Musical talent, etc.
- Rental of our space for business and community use during hours not used by the theater.
As we work to set Stage Door on a path into the future, we are taking specific steps that include a diversification of our leadership, board members, staff, crew and programming. We have already begun adding new board members who represent the vibrant and culturally diverse city we are proud to be a part of, and are working to add more in the coming weeks.
We will begin focusing on programming that will be sustainable moving into the future, with a short-term emphasis on digital channels and outdoor events. Concurrently, we will be working to build a team that can deliver on these fronts while continuing to produce the high-quality main-stage programming that so many of you love. Our expectations are high and we intend to bring quality, professional programs to you, along with expanded programming. We’re excited to move forward into 2021 and we are looking forward to seeing all of you as quickly as we can!
