OUR STORY 

 Main Stage's beginnings started as a small group of young artists , focused on performing material from new musical works. The group was founded by Humboldt  local, Daphne Endert. This early iteration  of the company performed anywhere from school talent shows to museums and private parties. In the fall of 2014, the company became a DreamMaker project under the Ink People Center for the Arts and   debuted British Composer Ethan Lewis Malby's Ada Lovelace at the Morris Graves Museum of Art of the first time in the United States. 

 With a strong company of young artists, and a chance for collaboration with  Bay Area talent, the company's first

Main Stage production The Sound of Music was scheduled to open in July of 2015.

 

 While the company's original vision was to perform out of much smaller venues, a change of scheduling  and a search for a performance space just three weeks shy of the first opening night, eventually led  the company  to the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts, our artistic home for the past 6 years. 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic Main Stage incorporated as a 501c(3) nonprofit organization and operates as a developing professional theater.

 

 We continue to honor our beginnings by further developing the arts in Humboldt through collaboration between local artists and professional artists nationwide. Main Stage also continues to foster new musical theatre works and provide local youth with dynamic arts training and performance experiences.
