Stage Door Series

SDS Web Cover.jpg

The Stage Door Series complements and builds upon Gamut’s Mainstage season, through the presentation of engaging and educational workshop productions that highlight the essential elements of theatre: the text, the story, and the action.

Stage Door productions have included radio theatre, staged readings, development of original works by local playwrights, and combat showcases; presented with the intention of reaching new audiences, involving new members of the arts community, and providing accessible theatrical experiences to the greater Harrisburg area.

While the Stage Door Series maintains the professional theatrical standard of Gamut Theatre, all participation in Stage Door productions is  volunteer, and admission for every production is by donation only, as defined by our motto: “Come as you are; pay what you will.”


Stage Door Series performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.
and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. 

The Box Office and Bar will open one hour prior to show time.

In Murderess, six notorious killers from American history  -- Laura Fair, Ma Hossack, Celia Bryan, Jane Toppan, Belle Gunness, and Lizzie Borden – welcome you into their space to reveal their secrets in a suite of monologues written and woven together by Anne Bertram.  Each woman offers her version of events, illuminating some of the most infamous serial murders in early modern America.

Portrayals in the press, the courts, and in local legend will be challenged or confirmed, leaving audiences to decide what is true and what is folklore.
