Our 12th Season: A Season of Change A wise man once said, “Change in all things is sweet.” Triad Stage completely agrees. We’ve always believed that theater can change your life. And this season, we’ll prove it with five thrilling stories of people transformed. But in our 12th season, change isn’t just about what happens in plays. In December, we launched an ambitious Challenge to raise $250,000 which, if made, would be matched through the generous contributions of The Cemala Foundation and The Joseph M. Bryan Foundation. After receiving 877 gifts from 25 states and 51 cities across North Carolina, we exceeded our goal. We can’t think of a better way to say thanks than by continuing to produce the highest quality professional theater for our community. Our 13th season, The Lucky Season, will kick off in September and we are thrilled to share it with you. Turn to page 44 in this playbill for a preview of what’s to come. Because of you – your continued support and encouragement – Triad Stage is here to stay. Whether you are a donor, a Season Passholder, a Cabaret Club Member or a single ticket buyer, we thank you for being an important part of our family. Preston Lane Artistic Director

Richard Whittington Managing Director

Triad Stage began as a dream... Co-founders Preston Lane and Richard Whittington forged their artistic partnership as graduate students at the Yale School of Drama. After managing a theater in Connecticut for two years, they undertook the three-year task of creating a professional not-for-profit regional theater to serve the communities of the Triad. In September 1999, Triad Stage purchased the former Montgomery Ward building, which had been built in 1936 and sat vacant for almost 40 years. Renovations commenced in the spring of 2001, transforming the five-story building into a theater center now called the Pyrle Theater, complete with a 300-seat theater and thrust stage, rehearsal hall, offices, two spacious lobbies, special events areas and other audience amenities.

The theater’s grand opening took place in January 2002 with Tennessee Williams’ modern classic Suddenly Last Summer. Since then, Triad Stage has produced over 90 productions, holiday shows and special events, and has sold over 400,000 tickets. In 2008, Triad Stage finished a second round of renovations to The Pyrle. A scene shop annex was added in the basement. The top floor underwent major construction to turn what was previously a storage center into the 90-seat UpStage Cabaret performance space, the Sloan Rehearsal Hall and the studio and office facilities of WUNC Public Radio’s new Greensboro Bureau. In 2011, Triad Stage purchased a 30,000 square foot building near the Greensboro Coliseum Complex to serve as a new production facility, relocating its scene, costume and properties shops as well as its warehouse. Now in its 12th season, Triad Stage has over 3,000 Season Passholders and more than 400 annual donors. The company has received accolades on national, state and local levels, including being named “One of the 10 Most Promising Emerging Theatre Companies” by the American Theatre Wing and “One of the Best Regional Theaters in America” by New York Drama League; voted the Triad’s “Best Live Theater” by the readers of the News & Record’s Go Triad nine years in a row; and named “Professional Theatre of the Year” by the North Carolina Theatre Conference in 2003 and 2011. Its production of Tobacco Road was listed among the “Best of 2007” by The Wall Street Journal, its production of The Glass Menagerie was named “Best North Carolina Production of 2010” by Triangle Arts & Entertainment and 2012’s production of Reynolds Price’s New Music trilogy was named among the “Best Productions” of the year in Triangle Theatre by Independent Weekly.


Triad Stage is guided by core values that inspire all aspects of our operations. These core values are a daily reminder to our entire company of why and how we produce theater for our community.

EXCELLENCE

COLLABORATION

We strive for bold, daring excellence in all of our endeavors as we seek to create professional theater with regional and national impact.

We celebrate and encourage an artistic process rooted in collaboration by creating an atmosphere where artists feel safe to question, experiment and grow. We seek to mirror this process in all aspects of our operations.

ARTISTIC RISK

REJUVENATION

Striving to constantly challenge ourselves, we reserve the right to take artistic risks and make mistakes.

We are committed to revitalizing downtown Greensboro by greatly enhancing the cultural life of the city through entertainment and by providing an economic impact benefiting other area businesses.

COMMUNITY

PARTNERSHIPS

As individuals are united in their shared experience of the theatrical event, strangers become friends, common ground is discovered and dialogue begins. In imagining the lives of others, our capacity for empathy is strengthened.

We are committed to sharing resources, ideas and talent with other organizations to benefit the well-being of our community.

LEARNING

A SOUTHERN VOICE

Theater is a valuable part of a lifetime of learning. Our work and the dialogue it creates should spark curiosity and inspire creative ways of thinking for our artists, staff and audience.

By placing the best of Southern writing in juxtaposition with classic and contemporary world drama, we foster a unique Southern voice, allowing our audience the pride of saying, “This theater is ours.”

INCLUSION

NORTH CAROLINA

Our community’s varied diversity must not only reflect itself in Triad Stage’s casting and staffing, but also in the selection of the stories we choose to tell.

We seek to play a leading role in the North Carolina arts community. We actively work to create an artistic home for artists with North Carolina connections and to provide a bridge to the profession for emerging artists.


Proud sponsors of tomorrow At Lincoln Financial Group, we believe in helping people face their futures with confidence. Which is why we established the Lincoln Financial Foundation: To support the hopes and dreams of Guilford County by providing the tools and resources it needs to lay the foundation for a better tomorrow.

Triad Stage is very proud of the name of our theater building – The Pyrle Theater – made possible by a generous donation by Tobee and Leonard Kaplan in honor of Tobee’s mother, Pyrle Gibson.

Pyrle Gibson (1909-2000) was a

woman with a great sense of humor, who found goodness in all people and beauty in the world around her. Her family always came first in her life and with them she shared her love of theater, music, and the thrill of sports. The theater is named for her in loving memory by the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the Kaplan family with whom she shared her love, wisdom and joy of life. 17
