Open Stage is a program where Alumnae members interested in performance get together once a month to play, perform and push their own creative boundaries on one of our beautiful stages at the theatre. It’s a safe space where members can grow and try new things in front of a supportive audience of fellow performers and artists. It serves as an opportunity for members to perform a piece of their choosing and see performances from others in the first part of the evening followed by a group activity. Actors of all experience levels are welcome!
For more information on how to join and the event calendar, visit our members-only site to contact the Open Stage coordinator. If you are not yet a member, please join us and indicate on your registration that you would like to be included in Open Stage.
