BAYSTAGES Services has over two decades of playbill and program publishing and content creation experience. We provide patrons with an enjoyable reading experience to enhance their performing arts excursions. From 2015 to 2022, BAYSTAGES Programs provided a branded region-wide format for Bay Area theatre companies and other arts presenters. Beginning with the 2022-2023 season we have moved to a bespoke model for all playbills and programs where our clients provide the substance and BAYSTAGES Services helps them set their own unique style.
