Introduction to StageDoor43
StageDoor Theater Company was organized by a group of professional actors and actresses who shared an interest in theater and wanted "to give rural communities" something back, in the way of real entertainment and appreciation of real play production, and to develop the talent which abounds in their communities.
Governed by a volunteer board of directors, the organization continues to draw from an extraordinary pool of local talent to create its annual seasons. The theater company is geared to uplift the theatrical talents in local communities, including directing, producing, acting, writing, etc. We embody the essence of creativity, and we aim also to create a safe atmosphere where actors and actresses make their own creative mark, regardless of age, through participation in workshops, stage productions, cabaret or drama vehicles.
