"Best Theater Troupe for Plays" -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch 2014
"Best Theater Company" -- Alive Magazine 2013
Upstream Theater is a professional production company dedicated to presenting new works and inventive stagings of classical plays, with a special focus on joint ventures involving artists from other countries. We offer a theater that is spiritual and sentient, witty and engaged, multilayered and syncretic. Our goal is to move you, and to move you to think. Our outreach has three prime aims: to offer St. Louis audiences an international perspective in theater, to engage local communities from cultures outside the United States, and to help develop younger audiences.
