Season 33 Has Been Announced!

“At a time in which we need shared catharsis more than ever, Season 33 offers a panoply of experiences that engage the imagination and stir the heart. We can’t wait to offer audiences the opportunity to laugh, cry, jump in their seats and lean into the experience of being alive in the world today – and to be able to do that together.” - Actor's Express Artistic Director, Freddie Ashley
