“The best part about having my child in STAGES was it was a place where she could go and be herself. She was accepted and loved for who and what she is. As the parent of a special needs child that is invaluable.”

Mark Barrasso, STAGES Parent

“I’m not sure I would have wanted my children anywhere else during their formative years, other than with STAGES or at performing arts related programs. The supportive atmosphere was like no other.”

Beth Doane, STAGES Parent
