Hampstead Stage Company (HSC) is dedicated to educating audiences across the country by bringing classic literature to life through live theatre. We believe that high-quality theatre should be accessible to everyone, regardless of socioeconomic background. HSC performs over 2,000 shows annually, serving nearly a quarter of a million audience members every year. We have toured in all 48 contiguous states and served over 21 million people since we were founded.
WHAT WE DO
HSC is a nonprofit national educational touring theatre. Every year, we produce four theatrical tours: spring, summer, fall and The Signature Series. HSC performs one-hour original adaptations of literary classics with professional actors, each playing multiple roles. Hampstead’s educational plays take the classics and use them to focus on strengthening 21st century content and skills including empathy, creativity, innovation, critical thinking, collaboration, leadership, and responsibility. We travel to your space and bring our own realistic sets and costumes, designed using extensive historical research, which are flexible enough to fit into any assembly/performance space.
The Hampstead family began its mission back in 1983. Hampstead Stage Company got its name from our founders: Daniel Matmor, Michael Phillips, and Katherine and Gordon Preston, who came to America from Hampstead, England to pursue their dreams. Since its inception, our company has grown into one of the largest educational touring companies in the nation.
