Have in Common?


ALL have been Subjects of WordStage’s  Literary Concert Series in Northeast Ohio and throughout Vermont.

Dedicated to the presentation of works with special literary, historical and musical merit, our aim is to employ professional local artists whose talents will illuminate the texts and music of some of the most fascinating and remarkable figures in the realms of history and the performing arts

Using letters, diaries, recorded conversations and contemporary chronicles underscored with musical compositions of the era, a WordStage performance will entertain, inform and educate audiences who have a love of literature, the humanities and the performing arts in their purest form.
