Beyond The Stage

Theatre, at its core, is a storytelling experience. Join American Stage as we venture Beyond the Stage into new spaces and storytelling formats. These new programs are local, immersive, and diverse. It's unlike anything St. Pete has ever seen before. Be sure to follow along as we update you on the creation of these pieces. Single tickets will go on sale soon.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit

nov 2-19, 2023

In this special production, our actors only have one chance to win over the audience. Each night, a different actor steps on stage to perform White Rabbit Red Rabbit, with a script they’ve never seen before.The true meaning of one-night-only, it’s emotionally vulnerable at times and hilarious at others. No do-overs. No repeats. No encores. A theatrical journey into the unknown that holds endless possibilities each time you experience it.

Welcome to a euphoric night on a rock ‘n’ roll rollercoaster with our transgender icon and protagonist Hedwig – a hedonistic genderqueer anti-heroine seemingly hellbent on destruction.
