With an annual operating budget of $2.4 million, Triad Stage is the largest independent producing arts organization in the region. Each year the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit professional theater raises $1.2 million in tax-deductible gifts from over 850 individuals, foundations and corporations to support its work and maintain the two facilities the not-for-profit owns.
Celebrating its 18th Season of locally produced original productions, Triad Stage is a professional 501(c)(3) not-for-profit regional theater company based in downtown Greensboro and downtown Winston-Salem. Over the years, Triad Stage has brought to life 133 productions (including 24 world premieres) created in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina using the best of local and national talent. The theater has sold more than 600,000 tickets and driven economic revitalization of our communities. With a strong base of support of more than 2,500 Season Passholders and more than 700 donors, Triad Stage continues to tackle difficult issues, embrace artistic innovation and foster community dialogue with our productions and learning programs.
The development of new, regionally specific work has been at the heart of our artistic vision to foster a unique Southern voice. To that end Founding Artistic Director Preston Lane has written and directed nine new Appalachian plays, five of which explore the Southern experience in the fictional NC town of Hawboro.
Guided by our core values of excellence, artistic risk, imagination, community, learning, inclusion, collaboration, rejuvenation, partnerships, fostering a unique Southern voice and playing a leading role in the North Carolina arts community; Triad Stage strengthens community, provokes dialogue and entertains audiences. From classics to world premieres, we invest in innovative theatricality, creating an artistic home not only for our artists, but also for our communities.
