A MESSAGE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, STUART HALUSZ
THEATRE 180 takes its name from the 180-degree perspective on life – from the buoyancy of youth to the wisdom of age and everything in between. Storytellers are agents for change, agents for enlightenment and an integral part of the fabric in a multicultural and intergenerational tapestry. The plays I program and stories we tell always come from the heart, from a place of hope and with a purpose to heal and foster resilience and genuine human connection. I believe it is essential for us to understand the stories of our past in order to inform the present, and thereby dream our future.
Join us as we present GREAT STORIES, WELL TOLD.
