As the producing organization of Emerson's Department of Performing Arts, Emerson Stage trains students onstage and off to be our next generation of theater artists. Our student actors, designers, stage managers, technicians, and educators work side-by-side with faculty, professional staff, and visiting artists to perfect their skills and deepen their understanding for their craft and the role theater plays in enriching our culture and community.

Emerson Stage compliments the academic excellence and goals of the Department of Performing Arts by offering performance and production opportunities for its students. In the nine productions in the 2013-2014 Season, there are over 120 opportunities to perform, more than 100 positions in theatrical design, 70 production positions, 70 management roles, and 30 artistic roles for Performing Arts students!

Join us, and see Emerson students joined by top theater professionals to bring these theatrical events to life.

Tickets start at $8 for members of the Emerson community and $10 for members of our community at large, with discounts for multi-play purchases and groups of 10 or more. Tickets and passes for the following shows will go on sale in August.

Emerson Stage and the Department of Performing Arts are proud participants in The Kennedy American College Theater Festival.
