The MAIN STAGE project under the Ink People Center for the Arts was created in the Fall of 2014. A small company of Humboldt County musical theatre artists, and an ambitious group of youth performers working together on what they thought would be a small first musical production. Preparations began for Rodger and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music began in October of 2014. With the collaborative efforts of guest performing artists and designers, 10 months later our little summer show had grown into a full-scale musical production at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts! It was clear that our little idea had grown into something much greater than any of us could have ever imagined.
Today we continue to “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” and proudly bring musical theatre to the beautiful Arkley Center for the Performing Arts, the home of our most recent and upcoming productions. Our unique project also continues to assemble multi-generational casts and work with guest artists from across the country. Our collaborations with out of town performers, directors, and designers have taken us all over the United States. Come tell stories with us
