Lab Theater Series

The LAB series is dedicated to experimenting and supporting theater arts. It’s about offering opportunities, widening participation and welcoming others. It’s about ensuring that the Arts Guild is meeting our community’s needs. LAB encourages new theater artists and advances seasoned theater artists to develop and sharpen skills.

A full history of LAB productions can be found in our production history.

Interested in participating?  We are always accepting proposals from directors, actors and crew to assist with LAB theater productions. Both theater veterans and newcomers are encouraged to join us. Please contact for more information or to start an application.
