About Us

Second Stage Student Theatre is dedicated to empowering young theatre artists and crafting the next generation of socially and culturally challenging works of theatre by creating avenues to explore theatrical production, direction, and design.

Founded by three college students in 2016, 2SST endeavors to bridge the gap between the theatrical opportunities available in university settings and the diverse, provocative art young Nashville artists are yearning to make. The company believes the new generations are reshaping the future of theatre and is dedicated to telling stories by young people, about young people. Through mainstage performances, concerts, staged readings, and a variety of other events, 2SST gives students a chance to independently produce, direct, design, sing, and act in the Nashville theatre community on a professional level.
