Since 1987, The Stage Company has been committed to bringing excellent live theater to the citizens of Southeast Missouri. Once formed, the Company mounted its first production, Love, Sex, and the IRS in May 1988. The Stage Company has continued to vary its performance material from kid-friendly productions like "The Wizard of Oz" to productions with more mature themes, like "Chicago." We are proud to have partnered in the past with the Poplar Bluff School District and other surrounding schools in offering student performances to shows like "The Diary of Anne Frank," "Anne of Green Gables," "A Seussified Christmas Carol," and "Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook" as a means to showcase literature and history as a cultural experience. We continue to grow as a company and as actors through our diverse subject matter.
Before we had a permanent performance space, we performed in church fellowship halls, gyms, ball fields, outdoors in Bacon Park, and in the Tinnin Fine Arts Center at Three Rivers Community College (TRCC). We now call the Historic Rodgers Theatre home!
