Give gift of theatre for the new year
December 27, 2012
Sierra Stages, a nonprofit community theater organization, is already underway on production of its fifth season locally. The company isn't just thinking ahead about production details but its audience as well.
Sierra Stages will once again offer affordable Season Passes for its upcoming season of plays and musicals in 2013. The fifth season includes three fully staged productions: Shakespeare's popular and enduring comedy "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical "Avenue Q" and the hit Off-Broadway revue "Closer Than Ever." The basic General Admission Season Pass is priced at only $55 (just over $18 per show) and allows theatregoers to select any performance of each of the three productions, with unreserved seating. For an additional $25, theatergoers may become Sierra Stages Members and choose reserved seats for each production. A third option, new for 2013, is a special Preview Season Pass priced at only $40 (just over $13 per show!), which allows theatergoers to attend one of the first two public performances ("previews") of each production with unreserved seating. Sierra Stages' 2013 Season Passes may be purchased online at http://www.SierraStages.org or by calling Sierra Stages at (530) 346-3210.
Sierra Stages is a nonprofit community theater based in western Nevada County with a mission to provide quality productions that are affordable and accessible to everyone. Offering Season Passes as low as $40 for three shows is part of its mission to provide affordable theatre. Since it began only four years ago, Sierra Stages has presented 15 plays and musicals and has been recognized by the Sacramento Area Regional Theatre Alliance with four Elly Awards and 23 Elly Award nominations. The annual Elly Awards honor outstanding achievements of community theaters and artists in the greater Sacramento area. Sierra Stages performs at various local venues, including the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City and the Off Center Stage in Grass Valley.
