New Stage Players to lease Bryan School
Michelle Kuester

After wrapping up a successful first year, the New Stage Players theater production company has reached an agreement with the South Sioux City city council to lease the former Bryan School in the 3200 block of Dakota Avenue.

New Stage Players plan to use the school as a home base for different fine arts classes, storage, and smaller-scale productions, according to Kristy Tremayne, the group’s vice president.

“We'd like to let people know we're here to stay,” Tremayne said. “We just needed a place to land. We want the community to know this place is theirs.”

The city agreed to lease the building after determining the cost to get utilities running again. According to Gene Maffit, parks director, during the Aug. 14 city council meeting, it will cost about $4,000 to get the boiler and other utilities ready to use.

Having a theater production group based in South Sioux City and geared toward locals is a huge benefit for the community, councilwoman Carol Schuldt noted during the meeting.

“We want to make it a community theater for South Sioux City and Northeast Nebraska,” Tremayne said.
