We hope and expect to be able to hold the specified in-person programs at our theater during the school year. We also acknowledge the COVID-19 pandemic is still evolving in ways we cannot predict. In the event of a pandemic-related or other disruption that would make in-person rehearsals and performances impossible, this program will transition seamlessly (in whole or in part) to an online format with a digital presentation.

WE RESPECTFULLY ASK THAT YOU DO NOT REGISTER FOR A STAGES PROGRAM IF YOU/YOUR STUDENT ARE UNWILLING TO PARTICIPATE IN AN ONLINE FORMAT SHOULD THE NEED ARISE. There will be NO refunds for this program unless it is formally and fully cancelled (without in-person or online options) for any reason.

UPDATED 1/4/2022 – In light of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in our area, STAGES has made some adjustments to our winter program schedule — including delaying the start for several (in-person) winter classes for our youngest students (ages 0-9). Click here to see the updated class schedule and to register for programs beginning in late January/early February when the worst of the post-holiday COVID surge is (hopefully) behind us.

Our 2021 Fall COVID-19 Health & Safety Policies are below, and will be updated by mid-January 2022 to reflect any new changes. Contact us with any questions!


Our refund and cancellation policies were updated in 2020, and have not changed this year – the current 2021 refund/cancellation policies can be found by clicking here.

STAGES continues to follow the business re-opening guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of Maine. We continue to meet with youth theater program directors in Maine and from across the country about critical health & safety considerations, and the innovation of new youth arts programming for this unprecedented time.

We will update all of the information on this page as things continue to evolve. Thank you for your understanding and support of our organization. We are doing the very best we can to stay open, stay safe, and stay connected with our mission and our community.


While the financial and organizational impact of the pandemic on our organization is significant, we doing everything we can to provide new, innovative and fun opportunities for young people to safely connect with one another during this isolating time.
