An Important Programming Update / COVID-19 Update – March 18, 2020
We will return…We are deeply disappointed that we are not able to bring the magic of live theatre to our audiences at a time when the need for the catharsis that powerful live storytelling provides is so great.
American Stage plans to resume our mainstage season in late May with ADMISSIONS, followed by NEXT TO NORMAL in July and then, THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS, opening its world premiere in September.
American Stage in the Park’s production of FOOTLOOSE and our Gala Under the Stars will be presented in October 2020.

Tampa Bay Premiere
January 22 – February 23, 2020
It’s 2008, and one of the last auto plants in Detroit is on shakey ground. The remaining factory workers are living paycheck-to-paycheck and now each of the workers must navigate the possibility of foreclosure. As power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred. With moments of heartbreak and humor, SKELETON CREW is a beautiful homage to the American blue collar worker.
“CRITICS’ PICK! A deeply moral and deeply American play, with a loving compassion for those trapped in a system that makes sins, spiritual or societal, and self-betrayal almost inevitable.” – The New York Times
