Backstage productions are selected especially for presentation in the intimacy of the backstage theatre setting. Playgoers are seated on stage where the action is, near enough to hear every word, every sigh, to see every comical expression and gesture, and to feel part of every scene. The staging and seating arrangements change with every Backstage show.
The Backstage at CPAC seats are general admission:
$12 for adults
$10 for seniors
$7 for students

Three actors. One desk. Three chairs. Theatre at its most elemental. Seven Interviews offers up seven different short plays, each with an interview format, and each of which illuminates some aspect of the human condition. The seven pieces range from the broadly comic to the achingly tragic. Among the situations set up in the seven pieces are a job interview to replace a secretary who is giving her employer nightmares, a biographer’s horrible realization that she doesn’t know her subject at all, the matter of a baseball team mascot who is frightening children at the ballpark, a dialogue between psychiatrist and patient with an unexpected outcome, a conference between parent and school principal over the expulsion of the woman’s son; along with pieces about a very unlikely customer for a professional hit-man, and an office cleaning lady caught red-handed on Christmas Eve.
