Special EventsCommunity Collaborations & One-Night-Only Shows
Join Gloucester Stage in celebrating our PRIDE with nights of pop-up food before the show and piano bar entertainment after the curtain closes on the first Saturday of every performance! These special evenings, throughout the run of our season, especially welcome all gay, lesbian, queer, and trans members of our community to experience world-class theater in a welcoming and entertaining space. Straight allies are encouraged to join in the party and all attendees are encouraged to stay as long or short as you wish – with a laid back feel pre-show and a more lively atmosphere in the evening until midnight or so.

FISH TALES: OMG
Presented by the Gloucester Writer’s Center – Real stories, told by the storyteller, live at Gloucester Stage.
Fish Tales started out as an idea – a local storytelling program at the Gloucester Writers Center, because at heart every writer is a storyteller. True stories, remembered by the storyteller, live. Our storytellers are ready to share funny and honest moments, and our enthusiastic audience reminds us that it is a joy and privilege to sit and listen to someone else’s life for a while.
Tickets are $25 and donations accepted at the door. No one turned away from lack of funds.
