GREENSBORO, N.C. — It's been a few years since the lights at Triad Stage have welcomed us to the local professional stage. But now they are ready to reopen under the guidance of someone who knows Greensboro theater better than just about anyone.
"I was honored that they wanted me to help reopen one of the best theaters in the area," said Mitchel Sommers, "Triad Stage is a wonderful space with its unique place in the theater landscape."
"You know we have the Community Theater just down the street that provides an outlet for local amateur actors and of course, the Tanger Center brings truly professional theater to the Triad but Triad Stage is unique," said Sommers, "Because this is a mix of the two. A place where professional actors work alongside amateurs to the benefit of them both as well as the audiences".
Triad Stage opens its 20th season in October with "Rebellious", a play written by a North Carolina playwright and centered around some Bennett College students during the sit-in movement.
