PLAY AT STAGES THIS FALL!
We can’t wait to see young people at STAGES again this fall, and we thank you for your patience as we finalize all of the details necessary in order to bring students safely back to STAGES for in-person, school-year programming.
Registration is open for several upcoming programs, including our Halloween scary movie, our Shakespeare program, and some exciting new ensemble-based offerings for kids ages 8 and up. Be sure to also check out the new STAGES Piano & Voice Studio — with in-person and zoom instruction options for private instruction!
We are still determining the best and safest way to connect with our kids ages 0-7, and will be posting updates soon on that front. Please check back soon for more details, subscribe to our newsletter, and follow @stagesyouththeater on social media for the latest updates.
Please read before registering…
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 THIS 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.

“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!”
“I have very low self confidence but through STAGES I managed to find self worth and pride in what I could accomplish. STAGES changed my entire life.”
