2019 Annual Appeal

201908_STAGES_Summer Cabaret_64Thank You For Your Support!

We’ve had much to celebrate at STAGES in 2019, including our Theater for Young Audiences pilot season, our expanded work in local schools, and another season of all-student theater productions and enrichment programming.

We can’t wait to build on these successes in 2020 – and we can’t do it without you.  Your generous year-end gift will fund theater artists going into Maine schools to engage students and teachers in active learning opportunities; upgrades at our in-house theater; and expanded programming for more kids from more Maine communities.

Your gift to STAGES is an investment in a thriving local institution that has provided a safe and nurturing space for thousands of amazing kids since 2007.  Will you support STAGES today to help us reach more young people – and change more lives – in the coming year?

Thank you for your support!

If you prefer to mail a year-end gift, checks can be made payable to “STAGES/Portland Youth Theater” and sent to: STAGES Youth Theater, 202 Woodford St, Portland, ME 04103

“Theater/STAGES was a critical part of my children’s development. Educators talk of the importance of sports and ‘teamwork.’ My non-athletic kids learned that through theater. They both appreciate the importance of expression through the arts….they are better people for it!”
