Stage II is an entirely student run organization at East Stroudsburg University, designed to expand the education and experience of all students interested in theatre.
Throughout the academic year, Stage II members work continuously to present their peers and our community with the art of theatre. Members take advantage of countless opportunities to involve themselves with the entire theatre process.
We welcome you to join our organization, and look forward to the magic you will bring into the theatre.
Stage II meets Thursdays at 2pm in the Smith McFarland Theatre, Fine and Performing Arts Building. Stage II notices, auditions and events are posted on the bulletin board in the Fine Arts lobby.
M.T.O. (the Musical Theatre Organization) is an active group of students who promote musical theatre by performing at many official university functions, and at major community events like the Stroudsmoor Christmas Tree lighting. Each year they host several workshops and master classes by Broadway professionals in both song and dance, as well as organize trips to New York City to see musicals. They meet weekly for meetings and rehearsals, and each spring they produce their own Musical Theatre Cabaret. MTO post notices, auditions and events on the bulletin board in the Fine Arts lobby.

The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) is a national theater program involving 18,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide which has served as a catalyst in improving the quality of college theater in the United States. The KCACTF has grown into a network of more than 600 academic institutions throughout the country, where theater departments and student artists showcase their work and receive outside assessment by KCACTF respondents. ESU productions are often entered in KCACTF competitions, allowing student actors, designers and stage managers to compete at regional and national levels and all members of the production to receive feedback from outside observers.
