Next Stage Initiative

Available Light Theatre (Columbus), known as central Ohio’s most vibrant presenter of new and original theatrical productions, was called one of the “hippest, hottest, companies in the country” by American Theatre magazine.

With their founder and Executive Director, Matt Slaybaugh, I co-produced the Next Stage Initiative between 2014 and 2018. Each year, we nurtured four to six new plays in workshop stagings with a rabid focus on investigation, revision, and experimentation.
During that time, we produced plays by Carrie Barrett, Jason Beehler, Brett Beach, Camille Bullock, Amy Crider, Emily Dendinger, Selina Fillinger, Jacqueline Goldfinger, Max Glenn, Jackie Hedeman, James IJames, Joe Kopyt, Mickle Maher, Karie Miller, Bianca Sams, Alexis Schaetzle, Jen Schlueter, Matt Slaybaugh, Mark Snyder, Jared Sprowls, C. Denby Swanson, Cody Troyan, Danny Turek, Calamity West
