Mainstage Season 2019

Upcoming Performances

Bully The Bully: Artists Against Hate
Performing: February 28th, 2019
Location: 44-02 23rd Street, Long Island City, NY 11101 (View Map)
Time: 7:00 PM
Description: Innately, we are all the same. There is little that differentiates us in terms of bones and matter and DNA – but there is, always has been, and maybe always will be a yearning for us to be different from one another. While some choose to see differences as positive and contributing to a full and well rounded human society, some choose to bully those who step away from their norms. An original mixed media work featuring poets, scenes, and dance, this show drives home the importance of human connection and kindness in our charged political climate. We are excited to partner with The Garden School in Jackson Heights for a scene writing contest and mentoring program in which the winners scene will be performed as a part of of the show.

Spring Awakening
Performing: March 20th – 24th, 2019
Location: 44-02 23rd Street, Long Island City, NY 11101 (View Map)
Time: 8:00 PM
Description: Spring Awakening is presented by The Secret Theatre and will run from March 7th- 10th and 20th-24th, 2019. The winner of eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical), Spring Awakening explores the journey through adolescence with poignancy and passion. It examines morality and sexual politics while unapologetically plumbing the depths of the hormonal teenage psyche in a way that feels both fresh and all too familiar. This landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of sex, rock & roll, and 1890s Germany.

This performance will be directed by Maya Hana Evans and it’s recommend for ages 13 and up.

To exact revenge, magic is used to create a torrential storm that shipwrecks his enemies on his island.
