The SOOP Acting Company’s mainstage productions are, quite literally, as old as SOOP itself! Founded in 1998, the SOOP Theatre Company, was producing only “Mainstage” original works in NYC at venues such as the now defunct UBU Repertory Theatre and The Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex. With the additions of our “educational arm”, the SOOP Theatre Arts Repertory (STAR) and our NEW home base, The 530 Studios at 530 Fifth Avenue in Pelham, NY, our “professional arm” took the moniker SOOP Acting Company and continues to produce both established and original works, now in two locations – NYC and Pelham, NY!
The SOOP Acting Company, always seeking projects that INSPIRE (inquire, nurture, support, promote, immerse, revel, encourage) is a professional regional, non-union theatre company. We often work with Actors’ Equity Association (the actor’s theatre union) to provide a Guest Artist Agreement, allowing us to cast union members. All of our mainstage productions are cast out of and rehearse in NYC and move to Pelham for final tech week and performance. Our move to Westchester and the new studio facility has been an incredibly rewarding one! The ability to provide such a professional, quality theatre experience in a place where we provide theatre education truly completes our company’s mission!
