We're glad you found us!

We invite you to take a look around and see what we do.

The first play of UpstART's fourth season is Tiny Beautiful Things, adapted by Nia Vardalos from a book by Cheryl Strayed. It chronicles Strayed’s experience as “Dear Sugar,” an advice columnist who fearlessly, vulnerably, often hilariously advocated embracing life and love.
