A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Welcome to the 15th Anniversary Season!
I am enormoulsy proud to offer our patrons five shows reflecting places in time. To reflect on ourselves, a culture needs places where reflections happens, places we can return to, to see ourselves on stage. Electric moments in which the play is taking place, then it retreats immediately into memory. UpStage is one of those places...a place where a talent seed is planted, nournished, and blossoms on our stage!
THE 2017 SEASON, "PLACES IN TIME" offers our patrons diverse works from contemporary dramas, new works and a holiday classic. Through your generous support, UpStage Theatre Company will continue to showcase our stories on stage.
Come in, take a seat and enjoy the show!
