“When you graduate from STAGES you wish you could do it all over again. STAGES helped me grow as a person and I truly miss it.”

DJ Nicholas, STAGES Alum

“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
