Eastern Front Theatre is proud to announce that the 27th annual STAGES Theatre Festival is moving forward – from a social distance. While COVID-19 restrictions have rendered in-person performances unfeasible, the 13 companies involved in this year’s Festival are coming together to offer a series of online sessions that will explore behind-the-scenes aspects of each show.

STAGES 2020: Behind the Curtain will begin July 8th, and end on August 21st, running on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Each session will feature a different group of artists providing insight into their production and its development.

“We wanted to use this roadblock as a chance to connect with our community in a different way and create a unique experience that theatregoers don’t always get,” said Elsa Pihl, Eastern Front’s Interim General Manager. “With each online session, the artists will take the audience deep into their process and explain some of their choices. Participants will see a side of the artists and shows that isn’t usually shared.”
