The Stage Door Players represents the City of Dunwoody’s premiere (and likely oldest) arts organization. Stage Door is well-respected within the Atlanta theater community. This respect was earned by long-time Artistic Director Robert Egizio who, during his 15-plus years at the helm, has built a professional theater company with a loyal subscriber base.

The survival of the theater is under severe threat, partially from COVID but primarily from the recent and quietly announced decision to “furlough” Robert Egizio while apparently retaining an administrative managing director.

If Stage Door is to survive, it will require inventive artistic minds rather than administrators to make it happen. In the months ahead, Robert Egizio’s creative direction, enthusiasm and commitment will be needed more than ever before.

If you are a subscriber, contributor, theater fan or a citizen who believes that the arts are important to Dunwoody, I urge you to write to the Stage Door Board, North DeKalb Arts Center, 5339 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody GA, 30338, in support of Robert Egizio and the future of the Stage Door Players.

Anne Hayden, Dunwoody
