KENTUCKY STAGE(S) mission is to provide professional adult-focused regional theatre to the emerging cultural centers of Kentucky. Bowling Green has a wealth of youth and family-focused theatre organizations and its community theatre record is impeccable. The road-circuit companies which now come through, bringing national companies of Broadway shows, are the top in the business. KENTUCKY STAGE(S), however, is something new. A professional company which produces specifically to an adult audience in the region; true regional theatre in the manner which was developed by the likes of true American theatre greats such as Margo Jones and Tyrone Guthrie.
In the fall of 2013, KENTUCKY STAGE(S) began its residency at the new Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, SKyPAC in Bowling Green. Opeing in September with THE LION IN WINTER starring film legend Andrew Prine, our first season continues to grow in both company-building and audience support.
Why the (s) at the end of Stage(s)? Kentucky Stage(s) was developed to play on multiple stages in Kentucky and the region... look for our second stage location to be announced in the spring of 2014.
KENTUCKY STAGE(S) is a new regioanl theatre performing in residence at SKyPAC (The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center) in Bowling Green, KY.
STAGE(S) was formed by the artists who had formally called Kentucky Repertory Theatre home. When that theatre ceased operations, the core directors and performers who had been in residence there had no intention of letting the dynamic artistic force they had created die with it. They formed a new company with the vision of forming a repertory company that would perform in several venues throughout the state.
The company opened in September, 2013 at SKyPAC with it's "experiment," a production of James Goldman's "The Lion in Winter," starring Hollywood's Andrew Prine.
STAGE(S) is in the midst of presenting its first full season at the state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center in Bowling Green, KY.
STAGE(S) is an Actors Equity Association Small Professional Theatre.
