Welcome to Prime Stage Theatre

Message from Wayne Brinda, Ed.D.
Producing Artistic Director

We have selected a season of fun, imaginative and thought provoking stories for you, your family and friends!

What makes the Prime Stage experience unique is not just how works of literature come to life on the Hazlett stage. We also have great programs like Saturday night “Desserts with the Director” where you can discuss each show with its director while enjoying delicious desserts from Atria’s on the North Side.

2nd Stage@Prime Stage is a series of small, fun, intimate, interactive theatrical experiences. You can have fun with your friends at our Social Media Hub in the lobby, and special events throughout the season will keep you and Prime Stage connected.

Our Education Programs help teachers inspire their teens to read, train students to work in the arts, and our Teen Dating Awareness program tours to schools and colleges.

I’m pleased to announce our new rehearsal space on the West End – just 5 minutes from downtown and the Northside! Along with rehearsing our shows, there will be master classes where you can learn stage makeup techniques, painting tricks, audition strategies from guest artists, and other activities.

There are lots of great things planned. It’s easy to find out what’s going on - Sign up for our E-newsletter, Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. I look forward to seeing you at Prime Stage this season. Be sure to say hi!
