Dec. 29 at 10:am and 1:pm

Working at break-neck speed, the multi-talented performers of the The Fourth Wall combine music, theatre, and dance in this sprint-triathlon variety show. The audience chooses the show order by picking cards from a deck and even determine parameters for some pieces created on the spot. Every performance is unique! As the onstage timer ticks down, The Fourth Wall will blow your mind with tricks, bust your gut with laughter, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye with beautiful music.

  • we’re bringing in fifteen different artists for kids with our Vacation Daze series for 35 to 40 performances;
  • we host Theater Voices for free staged readings of four shows for 16 performances;
  • and the Eclectic Series will feature at least 10 different artists who will both entertain and challenge our adult audience.
  • our theatre arts school – C.A.S.T. – Creative Arts at Steamer Ten – offers classes and produces shows for students 8-18.  This year we will produce three C.A.S.T. shows – produced entirely by students, plus two C.A.S.T./Kids Fare shows where students work with professional actors.

This past year we offered more than 150 performances, 400 classes/rehearsals with our students, community meetings, a day-long street fair to promote the neighborhood and other events.
