For The Artist

Center Stage

centerstageKelly Strayhorn Theater is dedicated to the essential idea of nurturing creative ambition and Center Stage is the heart of our commitment to professional and personal development. Monday Night Rounds and our Coaching Intensives are the intersection of imagination and ingenuity, ideas and advancement.

Center Stage encourages growth to propel the careers of established and emerging artists. Through discussion and forums, artists meet to exchange information, contemplate timely issues, and benefit from one another’s expertise and experience.

A reflection of live art itself, Center Stage is an ever-evolving initiative, inviting you to define the dialogue and purpose of a program offered by performing artists, for performing artists.

Monday Night Rounds

Monday Night Rounds call professional artists and arts managers together with individual artists and smaller companies for discussions about the success—and challenges—of presenting art to the public. Seasoned and emerging artists and producers explore topics in depth from their individual experiences. Attendance at seven Monday Night Round discussions entitles a participant to a reduced rental fee at KST.
