Chesterton Stage Productions creates shows where actors grow and audiences are entertained!
We believe that acting is best learned by doing, so most of our shows are educational theater. The casts range from first-time to experienced actors. Rehearsals include learning their parts while learning the craft of acting.

The Surprise, by GK Chesterton

“When God created the world, he did not write a poem, but a play, ‘a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it.'” – GK Chesterton

The Surprise is part fairy tale, part farce, part allegory. It tells the tale of an author who claims to have written the perfect play, but no one has ever seen it. It has dramatic tension, and yet there are no villains. He even has perfect actors – lifelike puppets that he has created just for this play. He puts on a performance for a wandering friar but is unsatisfied even with his perfection. He wants his characters to have free will…
