History of Stage West
Stage West Community Playhouse was founded in 1980, by a group of people who not only loved live theater, but also enjoyed performing. They put on shows at any available venue such as schools, the local VFW, churches, etc. The Main Stage building was built in 1993, and the Forum Theater was added in 1999. The facility is now recognized as one of the finest Community Theaters in the area. Stage West currently provides the community with live entertainment year round, and is a non-profit organization. The people involved in the operation of the theater are all community members that volunteer their time, including the actors, set builders, painters, ushers, lobby workers, light and sound designers and techs, costumers, back stage workers, board of directors etc. Anyone is welcome to become a member and/or become involved in the theater, in whatever capacity that interests them.
Stage West is proud to donate scholarships each year to deserving local high school seniors. This past year’s scholarships totaled $7,000 dollars, all provided by the patrons who participated in our raffles at each performance.
We want to thank you not only all our hard-working volunteers, but also our patrons, without whom there would be no theater.
