South Stage Parents: New Parents Night and Family Ads Info

Along with Mr. Knoedler, we’ll be hosting a night for new parents and caregivers to hear all about South Stage! Join us on Tuesday, October 12 at 7 pm in the Theater Classroom, Room 9141. Masks required. 

Tickets for our first production of the year, The Three Musketeers, will go on sale Monday, October 11. They will be reserved seating only. Please check for ticket buying information then. 

In the meantime, go ahead and place your family ads! The deadline for Musketeers ads is Friday, October 15. Frosh parents, you can also get a jump on your ads and submit them now – just be sure to choose the correct show when filling out the form. Please use the link below to place an online ad order or download the Family and Friends ad form. You can also see sample ads and pay via Paypal: 

About Playbill Ads:

Congratulate your favorite company member, or even the entire cast and crew, with a special message of support. Add a cute baby or kid photo! You can create your own ad and send it as a JPG or PDF, or you can send us your message and digital image, and we’ll design it for you. 

Additional Donations:

Please consider making a donation in addition to (or instead of) placing an ad. All donations are tax-deductible, and your generosity will be acknowledged with a listing in every South Stage Playbill for one calendar year.   

South Stage does not receive a production budget from the school other than modest stipends for adult directors. Although ticket sales typically cover production costs, we rely heavily on the funds raised through Playbill ads and donations to maintain and upgrade costume, construction, lighting, and sound equipment.  

Our first meeting of the SSPG Board will be on Monday, October 25 at 7 pm, location TBD. All are welcome to join us to find out more about volunteer opportunities throughout the year. We hope to see you then!

As always, all of the latest information can be found at, or following @SouthStage on Instagram or Facebook. Please reach out if we can answer any questions.

Thank you for all of your support!
