UpStage is now Points North!

We are thrilled to announce that – after 19 years – UpStage Theatre has decided to rebrand and relocate to a new neighborhood. On September 14, 2019, at the annual Woodlands Arts in the Park – Shakespeare in the Park Festival, UpStage artistic director Sean K. Thompson announced that production of “Macbeth” as the final production of UpStage… and the FIRST production of Points North Theatre Company.

A new name, a new look, a new location… but the same heart and dedication to providing exceptional theatre to its audiences!
