City Springs Theatre Company (CSTC) was formed in 2017 by Sandy Springs residents Jan Collins, Steven Hauser, and Peggy and Jerry Stapleton in response to the needs and desires for high quality musical theatre produced locally and highlighting regional talent. As a Presenting Partner of the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, City Springs Theatre is committed to artistic excellence, community engagement, and educational initiatives for all ages.
City Springs Theatre Company would not have become a reality without the generous support of Ken and Trish Byers and the Sandy Springs Foundation. A significant portion of the Byers’ founding gift to the Foundation was designated to City Springs Theatre Company and has been instrumental in supporting essential startup activities.
Since inception in 2017, CSTC has served over 92,000 patrons and 65,000 students through mainstage musicals and educational program offerings. City Springs Theatre Company offers a mainstage season from September through July of Broadway musicals chosen to entertain and inspire audiences, while creating a sense of place through the experience of live theatrical production.
In addition to musicals, City Springs Theatre Company, launched a Conservatory program in 2018 dedicated to training the next generation of performers and technicians in musical theatre. The Conservatory offers private lessons, a pre-professional company, summer musicals for high and middle school students, and participates in the Junior Theatre Festival. The Conservatory’s pre-professional company is a unique training program dedicated to students age 10-18 who are looking to pursue a career in the performing arts.
The 2021-22 season marks City Springs Theatre Company’s fourth season in Sandy Springs!
