Artists of tomorrow, on stage today

Emerson Stage is the producing organization within the Emerson College Department of Performing Arts. Here, the next generation of actors, designers, stage managers, technicians, administrators, and educators work alongside distinguished faculty, professional staff, and guest artists to bring skills learned in the classroom to vibrant life on stage. 

Each academic year, Emerson Stage shows are produced in each of the five different theatres across campus, including the Cutler Majestic Theatre, the Greene Theater, the Semel Theater, Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theater, and the Robert J. Orchard Stage in the Paramount Center. Learn more about these performance venues.

Most Performing Arts degree program curriculums include Emerson Stage participation requirements. For more detailed information, please visit your degree program page.
