History of the 7 Stages Theatre

7 Stages Theatre first opened in 1979 in what had been a storefront at 430 Moreland Avenue in Little 5 Points. In 1984, the theatre expanded into the property next door, which had housed a pool hall. Three years later, it moved to its present home in the Euclid Avenue Arts Center, a renovated movie house. The theater has produced 56 world premieres, 21 American premieres, and scores of regional premieres. Co-founders Del Hamilton and Faye Allen established the theater as a haven for artists and audiences in which social, political, and spiritual issues present in their daily lives are addressed.
