After 9 years of renting space from many great theater companies around Portland, STAGES recently started a new chapter of our mission! All of our process-based, non-competitive theater programs are now located under one roof; to provide a consistent, safe, and happy environment in which kids can continue to create amazing theater together.

In September 2016, STAGES moved our entire operation — including the office, rehearsal studio, and our mainstage performances — to a 6000-square-foot facility in the former gym on the Woodfords Congregational Church campus at:
202 Woodford Street
Portland, ME 04103

STAGES will spend the next several years upgrading, creating, and using this facility to provide a flexible performance space for our immersive youth theater productions. We are extremely excited that our central location in Portland will make it logistically possible for more children to participate in STAGES, and that we will be able to design a space that reflects the specific needs of our youth-focused programs. (We are also excited about all the on-site parking, available in the lot abutting the church!)

We hope you can join us and be a part of this exciting development. Stay tuned for more photos, details, and information about our opening events in this new Portland location.
Thank you for your support and interest in our programs!

“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!”

Liz Freeman, STAGES Parent

“Being able to think outside of the box and put yourself out there, especially as a child, teaches you how to be a confident, well-rounded person. I know I don’t know where I would be without youth theater.”

Eliza Skidgel, STAGES Alum & Employee
