Lee Street Theatre is a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization committed to providing an avenue for the presentation of new, challenging, and alternative performance art within the Rowan-Salisbury community. We are governed by an eleven-member board of governors and one staff member, the managing artistic director.
In it’s four years of existence, Lee Street Theatre has produced over thirty-five shows. The types of productions have been one-act play festivals, original ten-minute play festivals, cabaret style musicals, reader’s theatre, dance performances, original plays, variety shows, and improvisational comedy. In the winter of 2011, Lee Street Theatre held the world premiere of the new play Dirty Barbie and Other Girlhood Tales, which was a top 5 reccomendation at the 2012 Fringe Festival in Edinbourgh, Scotland.
For 4 years, Lee Street Theatre has rented the black box theatre at the Looking Glass Artists Center for performances. In September 2012, Lee Street Theatre will be embarking on its first ever Capital Campaign to build a new performing arts center in Downtown Salisbury.
