Amphibian Stage Productions
In 2000, three TCU grads started their own theater company, hoping to expand the range of performing arts in Fort Worth. Amphibian Stage Productions started small, with a version of Lanford Wilson’s Burn This as the only output of its inaugural season. But ASP’s influence slowly grew over the next few years, and the company added to its season, developed community outreach programs, and produced plays in both Fort Worth and New York City annually.
ASP now offers four main stage plays per season, each running for three straight weekends in their new home on Main Street. Since 2004, the group has also organized an annual series of readings designed to draw attention to the works of under-produced playwrights. These one-night-only events are held in the auditorium of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and works from playwrights such as Jon Robin Baitz and Richard Dresser have been featured in the past.
