Introducing Asheville's Newest Performing Arts Venue: The DownStageThe (New)Home of Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective - Coming in Spring 2018
Whether it’s left, right, or center stage, Down stage is where the most memorable scenes of any performance take place. Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective, the Company which prides itself on Making Theatre That Makes a Difference, began making plans to open the DownStage Performing Arts Center, in downtown Asheville’s thriving South Slope district. As one of the only public venues in Asheville, dedicated to the growth and nurture of the performing arts, this flexible,120 seat venue, with onsite parking,will serve as a permanent home for Different Strokes!, and as an additional performance and rehearsal venue for other performing artists and groups.
