CURRENT & UPCOMING STAGES PROGRAMS

PLAY at STAGES!

We know it’s been a chaotic return to school for many of our students and families and appreciate your patience while we’ve worked toward bringing students safely back to STAGES for in-person, school-year programming. With several in-person programs underway for our older (10+) students, we are really excited to announce a new semester of in-person programming for kids of all ages! These once weekly classes span no more than 6 or 7 weeks, providing an opportunity for families to return to (or join for the first time) an in-person, STAGES experience.

Current registration opportunities are listed below – and also be sure to also check out the new STAGES Piano & Voice Studio — with in-person and zoom instruction options for private instruction for students ages 8+.

We invite you to view our current COVID-19 health and safety policies, and to contact us at any time with your questions, concerns, or suggestions. And don’t forget to 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.


LIST OF CURRENT STAGES PROGRAMS!

STAGES is working toward our goal of providing expanded access to our programs through a scholarship process. In the meantime, we welcome your inquiries about how we can make our programs more financially accessible for your family. Please contact us any time!

“Being in productions with kids who were older than me exposed me to a sense of artistic community that I never saw at school or at home.”

Owen Doane, STAGES Alum

“My time at STAGES gave me a sense of belonging, and presented an entry point for something that I found myself so passionate about. These experiences helped to shape my love of the arts and appreciate the impact that the performing, and later visual, arts could have on my life.”
