• About Next Stage Repertory Company

    Next Stage is Craterian Performances’ professional acting company under the artistic leadership of Doug Warner and the Craterian’s executive director, Stephen McCandless. Its mission is to explore, expand, and exalt the human spirit, and to engage, entertain and inspire audiences, through the professional staging of classic and new plays of artistic merit.

    The company typically produces four shows per year, ranging from comedies to “high art” dramas, from classic titles to original works, and small scale musicals.

    In order to fit within the Craterian’s busy event calendar, Next Stage produces small cast plays that tell great stories in simple settings. The company is also committed to making professional theater as accessible as possible for the entire community, and tickets are among the least expensive in the region.
