21/22 Hop Hosted

RSVPs are recommended: email Karina.Z.Sainz@dartmouth.edu

At the confluence of the White and Connecticut Rivers, which separate Abenaki land into the states of Vermont and New Hampshire, JAG has nurtured and sustained a multi-generational and multi-racial theatre company with Black artists and community organizers at its center.  JAG's mission is to bring more compassion, empathy and love into the world by telling stories that challenge hierarchies of race, gender, class and sexuality. These stories are written and produced by and for Black, Brown, Queer and Trans folx and the people that love them.

After a slate of radio plays in last season's JAGfest 5.0, JAG Productions will return to the stage with in-person audiences at the Briggs Opera House May 13-15 with two new plays and a full musical for JAGfest 6.0.
