Second Stage Season

Our Second Stage season is most often presented in the new Purple Masque Theatre in West Memorial Stadium. This venue was the subject of an 8 million dollar renovation to transfer the old performance space and create a new home for K-State Theatre.

Second Stage plays are produced, directed, designed and performed by K-State theatre students - regardless of major or class standing.

The Second Stage is where students practice their craft, experimenting, creating and solving artistic and technical problems to create a production that is all their own.
