  • The Belle of Amherst

    March 18 - April 23

    The Belle of Amherst of the title is Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), a pioneering
    female American poet, who remains influential to this day. Although only ten
    of her poems were published during her lifetime, some 1,800 were published
    after her death,not including two new collections published since 2013
    consisting of poems collected from scraps, chocolate wrappers and
    envelopes. Her concerns regarding her compositions extended beyond
    themes and the choice of words to the way the word visually
    appeared on the page.

  • Fritz Coleman Returns to SMP - Again!!

    Saturday May 6, 2017 @ 2:30PM

    Fritz returns with an expanded version of DEFYING GRAVITY, a humorous look at
    the far side of 50. Yes, we all have to face that sooner or later, and Fritz is bound to
    share some insights that make it fun, funny, and familiar. We all know Fritz as that
    nice NBC weatherman who has been appearing in our living rooms seemingly
    forever; we've watched him grow up. Join us for this playhouse fun-raiser, an
    afternoon of wit and laughter, followed by a wine 'n cheese meet 'n greet in the lobby.

In early December, we received the great news that we were one of four theaters to receive a Theatre Enrichment Grant from The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation.

In his letter, Executive Director Mark Dederer wrote: Your production of "Bee-Luther-Hatchee" exemplifies excellent artistic content that promotes important conversations around timely social issues", noting that "the broad community outreach and audience engagement plan ... was especially exciting considering the size of your organization."

This comes as especially gratifying news in that it directly acknowledges the heart of our mission - to offer our audience greater access to each stage production in our season with community engagement events and in our lobby displays. In the case of Bee-Luther-Hatchee, the themes of race and diversity come at a particularly important moment in the national discourse.

We congratulate the other second round 2016 Theatre Enrichment Grant recipients: Geffen Playhouse (Actually), ACT Theatre (Tribes) and Center Theatre Group (Zoot Suit).
