Welcome to Tidewater Stage
After nearly a decade of planning and dreaming, Regent University proudly launched its new professional theatre company, Tidewater Stage, last summer. Our inaugural season, featuring the 1950's music revue Forever Plaid and the Neil Simon comedy Barefoot in the Park, was a glorious success. Hampton Roads came out in droves to support Tidewater Stage resulting in sold-out houses and a record-breaking sponsorship campaign. What an exhilarating experience we shared together.
Looking ahead, the future of Tidewater Stage is exceedingly bright. With the only Professional Actor Training Program (MFA) at a Christian university in the world, a $35 million, state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center, and a resident faculty of acclaimed theatre artists, Regent University is well positioned to grow a professional theatre company. So, make your plans now to join us for our second season. I guarantee you'll have as much fun, if not more, than last summer! Our “Season of Southern Charm” will feature two delightful productions celebrating Southern living: Pump Boys and Dinettes and Driving Miss Daisy. Season subscriptions go on sale April 21.
I'll see you in the theatre!
