About Stage West
Stage West Theatre was founded by Jerry Russell in 1979. The former warehouse was converted into a 170 seat theatre with a spacious front area used for studio productions and preshow dining. After moving locations twice, Stage West returned to Vickery Blvd and following a four-month renovation opened the new 144 seat proscenium stage. In 2020 Stage West began its 19 month renovations and reopened unveiling The Russell Theatre, The Evelyn Wheeler Swenson Theatre, The Larry and Karen Anfin Rehearsal Hall and The Lobby Café. Stage West’s vision is to be a cultural commons for Fort Worth’s art seekers.
