SAS PERFORMING ARTS MAIN STAGE
SAS Performing Arts Company, Inc. introduces the brilliant talents of emerging artists, together with active professionals, in a exciting array of wide-ranging repertoire. SAS MAINSTAGE focuses its efforts to promote classic and contemporary plays, and American musical theater works by bringing them to audiences that might not have the opportunity to attend and enjoy live theater, thus enriching the community's cultural life. Our mainstage makes this intricate art form more accessible to our audience. We hope the exhilarating connection generated between the music, text, and drama becomes more immediate in an intimate, up-close environment. We are a home for performances of acknowledged masterpieces as well as the rarely performed works that deserve a more extensive hearing.
Participants from our Dramatic Arts Studio are considered for roles in these productions, which will enable them to perform and perfect their craft.
