Welcome to Seven Stories Theatre Company!


Seven Stories Theatre Company


We all have our individual and collective stories, and Seven Stories  Theatre Company strives to not only tell thought-provoking, moving stories but to reach anyone with a story to tell and to tell the stories of those who cannot tell their own.

For the past 12 years, our artistic staff has been dedicated to providing a mix of original works, social justice theatre, main stage classics for a variety of ages, and historical-educational performances and programs, in addition to teaching theatre arts and creative writing through workshops and classes.

In 2015 and 2016, during our transition to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, we have concentrated on new areas of research and the development of new works in order to honor the rich nautical history of our new home, and we plan to debut a number of new works in the next year that reflect our commitment to historical accuracy and high-quality entertainment.

Since making our debut in 2004 we have reached over 35,000 young people and their families in West Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York with our social justice plays and interactive bullying education and prevention workshops, not only to educate but, just as importantly, to provoke discussion and collaboration. We will apply these same standards to our historical-educational work.

Using a variety of theatre techniques both traditional and cutting-edge, our artistic staff and collaborators create original performance pieces and programs that help audience members, students, and performers increase their self-esteem and team-building, problem-solving, and communication skills so that they can visualize and actualize successful and socially healthy lives.

Thank you for visiting this website, and we look forward to sharing our stories with you and hearing your own.
