All casting for the 2016-2017 Season is complete.

OpenStage is a non-profit performing arts organization founded in 1973 and composed of an Ensemble Company of actors, directors, designers and technicians. Individuals who work with the Company during a season initially are considered Associate Members. Full Company Membership is attained after an individual has worked with OpenStage on at least 4 productions over a minimum of 2 years.

OpenStage Theatre’s Essential Season is composed of 6 shows, 5 of which perform in the Fort Collins Lincoln Center, and 1 of which performs outside in June at the Columbine Health System Park in Fort Collins. Each Essential production runs for 5 weekends, Friday and Saturday nights, with 1 Sunday matinee. There is also a student performance, a pay-what-you-can performance and one or more private sponsor performances for each production.

OpenStage Theatre's etcetera Season is composed of 2 shows which perform in non-traditional spaces. Each etcetera production performs for 3 weekends, Friday and Saturday nights, with the possibility of 1 Sunday performance. There is also a student performance and a pay-what-you-can performance.

All actors in a production receive a small cash stipend and complimentary tickets to both the Essential and etcetera Seasons, based on level of membership (2 season tickets for Company Members and 1 season ticket for Associate Members).
