Program description

The Essential Theatre Mainstage Series features three performances annually, spanning classical to contemporary works with emphasis on African-American culture. These productions are offered in our Public School Matinee Series which creates field trip opportunities by offering students morning performances of our currently running productions. Our intent is to augment the K-12 curriculum by sharing culture and ideas through the arts. Shows begin at 10 a.m. and vary between 1 to 2 hours in length.
