I‘m excited to announce Theater Scoop a new, pop-up news site to cover Reno-area theater in summer 2021! Given that the performing arts have been hit particularly hard by pandemic closures, we want to support local stages and groups. We’ll preview and review performances, report on the issues that affect the community, and help spread the word about events.

Longtime Reno theater writer Jessica Santina has joined the Theater Scoop team, along with a great group of new and seasoned arts journalists.

Starting June 14, we’ll publish reviews, conversations, a regular feature on children’s theater, and Q+As with both performers and the hardworking people who keep things running behind the stage. (We have a few other goodies up our sleeve, too. If we exceed our funding goal, we’ll announce more offerings.)

Theater Scoop is half community-funded and half sponsor-funded. Here are the top 3 ways you can team up with us to help local performing arts groups stay in the spotlight this summer:

1. Contribute to our GoFundMe.

2. Join the Theater Scoop email list.

3. Follow @theaterscoop on Instagram.
