2nd Stage@PrimeStage

2nd Stage@Prime Stage engages audiences in exciting and immersive new ways. Play readings support our Main Stage productions by reinforcing themes and opening a dialogue with audiences. The Series also provides hands-on theatre coaching, strengthening our artistic community and opportunities for audience members to experience the artistic process from the other side of the stage.
