Second Stage Productions is a student-driven outlet for the creation of innovative theatre in the MSU Department of Theatre. Students are encouraged to express themselves through directing, acting, design, and production in a collective, experimental atmosphere of trial and error. Through this production organization, students are given the opportunity to think imaginatively in order to achieve their vision for storytelling on the stage.
