Mainstage Productions

Matthews Playhouse Mainstage Productions features titles that are typically family focused, but select production titles can also be geared towards adults or young people.  These shows are auditioned and feature actors from around the Matthews region.  Mainstage productions typically run 2-3 weekends with both evening and matinee performances.

Matthews Playhouse School of Theatre productions are cast exclusively with students from our year-long theatre classes. Only students in our classes will appear in these productions, and their performance is a culmination of the training they receive throughout the year.
