In old theatre terminology, the theatre is considered “dark” on nights when no shows are playing. This April, we’ll have our theatre for young audiences production of Snow White during the day, and we’ll be presenting a series of one-night-only engagements in the evenings. This project offers programming that will be different from what you usually see at NextStop– don’t miss it!
