SoArtsPro believes that theatre can and should be for everyone. We believe in non-traditional casting except in the case of true period pieces.
It is our goal not only to entertain but to inspire, and educate. In addition to shows, we will offer educational programs for youth and adults.
When Quentin Edwards moved back to Columbus from NYC, he noticed a sad trend. The theatre had become something just for certain people to enjoy and an even smaller group of people got to perform in these shows. Even more, there was a lack of diversity in the cast and patrons.
The mission of State Of The Arts Productions is to offer quality performances that enlightens, educates, and most importantly entertains our community and beyond. We believe that theater should and can be for everyone and will strive for non-traditional casting whenever possible.
After a long hard fight with kidney disease and the toll it took on his body, Quentin Edwards lost the battle on July 5, 2014. His spirit will live on through SOARTSPRO. All events will be postpone until a later date.
