What's on stage now?
Now Playing

The Shelton Studios Theater continues to produce classical and contemporary works, in addition to fostering new voices. We provide artists with the respect they need and a venue within which to hear their work. On any given month on the Shelton stage, artists will be presenting a range of literary based plays, musicals, new solo works, and improvisation performances. In addition to professional artists work, our students will also present their work publicly through our scene night presentations.
