UpstART's Offerings


 Contemporary Productions

UpstART chooses scripts that move: Emotionally engaging, smart, fast-paced plays that awaken new perspectives in performers and audience alike. We are committed to sparking lively dialogue and heartfelt connection in our community through theatrical performance.

No Holds Bard Shakespeare

Each Summer, UpstART produces 1 or 2 Shakespeare plays in the month of July.  Performed in the round at the historic Wright Opera House, No Holds Bard offers Shakespeare like you've never seen it: the way he intended it! Intimate, fast paced, delightful, and highly physical. Check out www.noholdsbard.rocks for more info on the Shakespeare program.
