How to find STAGE TOO:

The best way to find STAGE TOO is to enter the alley between PCA and the merchants on Cortez St between Willis and Sheldon. From the alley, Murphy's is on the far left (south) and Peregrine is on the far right (north).  Walk through the alley until you arrive at STAGE TOO, one door to the south of the freight entrance to Peregrine Books.  There will be signage to mark the location.

PCA is very grateful to Ms. Judith Hardes and to the Prescott Lowes for their generosity which is assisting PCA with making Stage Too possible.  PCA is also extremely appreciative to all of our AMAZING volunteers who have put in many hours and lots of physical labor making Stage Too a viable space for performers, students, and patrons.

MAY 1, 2, 3, 8. 9. 10 at 7:30pm and 4 and 11 at 2pm

By Christopher Durang  Directed by Jon Meyer


From the twisted mind of Christopher Durang are two hilarious one-acts with the bite of a shark.

THE ACTORS NIGHTMARE. Ever have that dream where you've arrived for something important but don't remember perparing for it? That's what's happening to George, an accountant who finds himself expected to play several roles for which he hasn't rehearsed, much less learned his lines, which just may get his head chopped off.  

SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU brings you face to face with the world of a psychotic nun bent on saving, or killing, her charges in order to save them from Hell.  Enter her classroom if you dare.
