This season we celebrate our 31st Anniversary and have assembled one of our greatest seasons yet for your enjoyment. You can count on Evergreen Theatre’s commitment to quality productions along with a few other treats this season.
NEXT DOOR THEATRE
Evergreen Theatre and Next Door Theatre had done a great deal of cooperating and supporting of each other’s productions throughout their history. Also, the vision and purpose of the two organizations were quite similar, making an official merger the next logical step. So, the friendship became a marriage, as the two became one organization: Evergreen Theatre. So as not to lose any of the momentum and direction of Next Door Theatre, Evergreen formed its Young Actors program and differentiated it from the Mainstage, adult program.
The Rabbit that has identified the Young Actors program was the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, who stepped out of Wonderland to lead Next Door Theatre. As Evergreen grows and develops, the Young Actors program has carved out its own identity, even establishing, in 2013, The Summer Theater Arts and Creativity Program. This educational summer program teaches young people about all aspects of the theatre, with classes on acting, improvisation, directing, stage management, sound and light design, costuming, and even playwriting. With this approach, students have the opportunity to not only enjoy theatre, but to take personal ownership in creating incredible productions!
Evergreen is dedicated to reaching for the extremely high standards set by Next Door Theatre and continues the tradition of a yearly touring production. Season Tickets are available for both the Mainstage and the Young Actors shows. With four Mainstage productions and three Young Actors productions – plus the tour show – each season, Evergreen is positioned to truly infect people of all ages with an experience and growing passion for great theatre!
