The Next Stage Arts Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing Putney’s cultural and economic village center through the programming, development and operation of Next Stage. Founded in 2011, the Next Stage Arts Project (NSAP) presents world-class performing arts and film across a diverse range of genres and media, with the intention to foster rural community cultural and economic revival. NSAP collaborates extensively with fellow arts organizations and schools. NSAP’s audiences come not only from Putney, but throughout the region drawing from a 50-mile radius. Next Stage’s primary performance venue is in a building owned by the Putney Historical Society (PHS) at 15 Kimball Hill. Our two organizations are working in collaboration to assure the preservation and improvement of the historic space.
