#IStageAbroad: South Korea

Imagination Stage is thrilled to announce that we’re taking our beloved Early Childhood production, Inside Out, to South Korea to participate in the 25th ASSITEJ Korea International Summer Festival July 21-22. This is especially exciting because this is the first time a performing arts organization from the United States has performed in this festival! Inside Out follows the story of two siblings who use their imaginations to turn their room into a wonderland of mess instead of getting ready for bed. While playing dress-up, a glove becomes a dancing fish, a shirt becomes a fantastic creature, and a sock dance rocks the closet. […]

Wonderland: Alice’s Rock & Roll Adventure Director’s Notes

“Who am I? That’s the great puzzle!” “So, I’m learning. There’s a lot more to it than I thought, this being a queen…growing up. I just wanted to be in charge for a change.” When we first did Alice in Wonderland in 1998 at our theatre in White Flint Mall, my own daughter was in the throes of the terrible twos; she spent much of her day screaming in frustration, and I was at a loss trying to figure out what she wanted. While watching our production of Alice, it suddenly struck me: being small is so hard! You have […]

Lucky Stiff Director’s Notes

LUCKY STIFF DIRECTOR’S NOTES At the top of Lucky Stiff, we find Harry Witherspoon unhappily stuck in a life he’s too scared to try and change. It’s “good” by all standards. He has a job, a home, a routine…but it lacks surprises. However, an extraordinary circumstance soon knocks his world off its axis. Harry’s life is disrupted and extreme change hits him fast. He’s forced to scramble to survive the roller coaster ride. I’m not sure how familiar that feeling sounds to you, but to me it sounds just like being a teenager (so who better to tell this story?!). […]
