Mazeppa Productions is dedicated to the art of musical theatre. What you will see on our stage is simple – exciting, vibrant, and thought-provoking works of musical theatre. Some of our productions will be innovative productions of old favorites, some will be developmental productions of new works, and others will be productions meant to introduce the art form to a whole new generation. No matter what you see, we guarantee you will be exhilarated and challenged.
As for our unique name, we thought what better place to look for name inspiration than the quintessential backstage musical, Gypsy – arguably the finest musical ever written. In the musical, Louise (soon to be Gypsy Rose Lee) meets three strippers who teach her the art of performance (“You Gotta Have A Gimmick”). Miss Mazeppa, the first of these strippers, proclaims that to succeed in this world, you need to be unique and dynamic, looking at things in a brand new way. We loved that advice so much that we took her name as our own!
