New Stage Theatre

New Stage Theatre, now in the midpoint of its sixth decade in operation, is a Jackson institution. From its first performance of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” to its upcoming production of Matilda the Musical, New Stage has been a font of local culture and artistic education for ages. New Stage also has a beloved series of workshops and summer camps for children. Its education focus makes the theater so influential in Jackson’s creative development.

Its 54th season kicked off with “Into the Breeches,” a comedy about an all-woman production of “Henry V” set against the backdrop of World War II. In 2020, after “Matilda the Musical” (Jan. 28-Feb. 9) comes “Pipeline” (March 10-15, March 17-22). Finally, two plays adapted from novels, Mark Haddon’s “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” (April 21 – 26, April 28-May 3) and E.L. Doctorow’s “Ragtime” (June 2-7, June 9-14.) — Nick Judin
