WINTER/SPRING PROGRAMS

A note about STAGES Winter/Spring Programming…

Thank you for considering a Winter/Spring Program at STAGES Youth Theater! We remain committed to delivering new, innovative, SAFE ways of connecting with young people as the global health crisis continues to unfold. …And because nobody is sure what happens next, you’ll find both virtual and hybrid programming options in the upcoming semester.

Virtual Programs are designed to start and continue as online programs for the entirety of the session – a great choice for students and families who feel uncomfortable with in-person instruction or for students who do not live in the Portland area.

Hybrid Programs will start in the virtual classroom at the beginning of the semester, with the hope we can switch to some in-person rehearsals and final filming on campus later in the spring when the weather is warmer. We also acknowledge that Hybrid programs may remain virtual throughout, depending on how pandemic parameters play out in early 2021.

Whether we’re creating together in person, or online, STAGES will provide a fun, nurturing, and safe space for enrichment, friendship and self-discovery. We are really excited about our upcoming programs, and can’t wait to see you this winter
!

Please read our COVID-19 updates any time, and do not hesitate to contact us with questions any questions or concerns.


STOP. PLEASE READ.
