Community Events @ The Hipp

Come see what the Hipp has to offer on our second stage! Second stage programming includes different series and events such as our Jazz Series, Improv Comedy Night, swing dance classes, open mic sessions, and salsa dance classes.

For the first time this year, the Hippodrome has added a season of staged readings to complement the work being produced on the Mainstage. The mission of the 10-installment season is to feature plays that deserve to be seen and explored by the community, but may not be able to sustain a run in our Mainstage season. The series will feature new works, up-and-coming playwrights, local playwrights, and challenging content, and will strive to highlight the voices of under-represented groups within the North Florida community and the theatrical community at large. Fifty percent of this first season’s offerings are new works.
