Open Stage at School

We hope this finds you well. And to start, THANK YOU for everything you do as educators in our community. We know what a difficult time this is for teachers, administrators, and students, 


We are sad that we will not be able to present theatre in a traditional way, but we are excited by the opportunities that social media, streaming platforms, and modern technology has afforded us.


Our goal this season is to make professional theatre accessible and free to any person who wants to see it, even in times where we cannot safely gather. So we would like to offer you access to all nine of our productions this season, which stream on our YouTube page.


Open Stage will offer free streaming of any show in the season to schools looking for a “virtual field trip.”


In addition to the stream we have lesson plans and resources available for each production. If you would like to support the work of Open Stage, you can buy access on a sliding scale. We know that many schools have access to funds for field trips, and we, like many cultural entities across the country, would like to offer up a “Virtual Field Trip Package” to accompany all of our literature-based productions.
