Poison Apple’s Main Stage shows are performed three times a year – twice at our beloved Poison Apple Playhouse in Martinez, and once (our big summer musical) at the Lesher Center for the Arts. 

Adults and children come together as performers, artists, and family members to create a complete production – from scenic design and construction, properties creation, costume construction, make up and hair design. Finally, our ensemble cast comes together, rehearsing three to four nights a week for six to eight weeks, to tell creative and heartwarming stories that challenge the mind, change the heart, and inspire conversation and further exploration outside the magical walls of the theater space.

Our Main Stage Shows are directed and designed (and sometimes written!) by a mixture of passionate youth and professional community artists who work together towards the goal of a memorable theatrical production.

Our Main Stage performers are cast by audition only and perform for two to three weekends in shows open to the community. We hope to see you at our next Main Stage production!
