by BWW News Desk on November 16, 2017 in Montana

The secret to success at Verge Theater for the last two decades? Know the audience!

So we respond with the battle cry: Diversity Is Our Mainstay! Sometimes they die on our sword, but most times the audience rewards them with what matters most, their time, attention, and respect Not to mention laughs! They never turn down laughs!! So in December, they're aiming for variety. (more...)

Three times per season we offer this intensive workshop experience, and our Fall session is traditionally devoted to a musical involving teens in grades 6-12. The teens have been working with Director Liam Mayer and Assistant Director Jaelyn Silvey (two former Teen Theater participants themselves!) since September to create another exciting show! (more...)

After Verge Theater's completely sold-out run of The Producers in September, the company is inhaling and looking at the rest of the Fall in Southwest Montana as a time to tell some interesting stories.
