The Online Stage
Everybody loves a good story and people particularly enjoy those stories when they are cast in dramatic form. In a well-performed play, we feel every heartbeat while we root for our hero. We feel the anger and despair. We feel the passion. We feel and join in the laughter and the tears.
The Online Stage prides itself on quality theatrical productions, in which we reach out to our audiences to introduce them to works, both known and unknown.
If you are interested in learning about or listening to spoken audio drama, or if you feel you could contribute to our cause, please feel free to contact us.

Andy Harrington has always found reading silently a bit too relaxing, and prefers to read out loud. His interest in professional narration and voice acting was sparked in 2016 as a natural marriage of his love of performing on the stage, the written word, and technical expertise gained through his career at a video production house. His hobbies include community theatre, playing guitar, collecting old school video games, singing karaoke, and of course listening to audiobooks and podcasts. He lives with his young son in Midland, Michigan, a town just to the right of the middle of the “mitten” and has a Bachelor’s degree in Film and Video Studies from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan.
