Many of the greatest theatrical endeavors have been created for a small stage. This 
makes them perfect for production at the Liberty Free Theatre, which seats no more than a few dozen audience members.


While our stage area is also small, our productions are filled with all the drama seen in theatres a hundred times larger.


When we recently staged "Off the Wall," a melange of pieces both large and small compiled by Paul Austin, our tiny stage almost overflowed with more than a half-dozen performers.


In this case, they were all members of the Free Theatre Workshop Group, our own array of local actors studying to perfect their craft.
