Here's What's new at Stages
@toasterdog - Is your super arts weekend plan a go?
Join our Friends!
As 2015 begins, we're excited to take that "repertory" part of our name to the max by presenting two complementary works performed in the same theater on alternating days. The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe and Character Man will utilize the same design team and share essential technical elements, yet the theatre will be transformed from one night to the next to create a unique environment for each piece.
Both one-person tour-de-force performances, the plays tell very different stories but share a common thematic thread. Taken together, they invite audiences into adventures of the theatrical imagination created by two truly extraordinary performers, neither of whom might usually be considered a lead actor. Character Man is a paean to these often unsung heroes who create the background and foundation for the main story, adding texture, nuance and contrast to the central events. And in many ways, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe is read on...

The Young Actors Conservatory (YAC): Full Throttle Professional Theatre Training
The Young Actors Conservatory (YAC) is a unique summer intensive that offers conservatory-style training for Houston-area middle and high school students. Led by recognized theatre professionals, YAC master classes encourage participants to explore every facet of dramatic production.
Using a total immersion method, students develop scripts; create costumes, sets and props; design lights and sound; learn movement and voice techniques; and rehearse and perform roles. Building on what they’ve learned, students focus on a central theme to conceptualize, write, design and perform an original theatre piece, combining the students’ own material with texts taken from the work of well-known writers. The program culminates in a fully realized production of this work at Stages Repertory Theatre. Mark your calendars now and plan on joining us to see all of our talented conservatory participants for FREE!
