- Art, Culture, Theater and The Forum
Ensemble Stage, a 99-seat Professional Theater, was conceived out of an unfaltering love of the performing arts and the unquenchable desire to share it with the North Carolina High-Country Community.
Since October, 2009, Ensemble Stage has:
- presented over 100 productions (plays, holiday shows and special events) with over 500 performances
- sold over 25,000 show tickets
- hired over 200 performers, as well as more than 40 designers and technical crew personnel
- trained over 100 students, ages 5-16, in theatrical and presentation techniques
- accumulated nearly 100 dedicated annual donors and nearly 200 annual season subscribers.
The mission and purpose of Ensemble Stage is three-fold:
•To provide the residents of The High Country and its visitors, a broad range of live theatrical presentations of the highest possible quality at an affordable price.
•To inspire, challenge and nurture the imagination and social skills of youths and adults through theatre-based educational programs.
•To be an active part of the cultural growth of our community through collaboration with residents, local businesses and other not for profit organizations.
- The High Country's only year-round theater
