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. After seven whirlwind months of testing new technology, new Big Ideas, and new methods of rehearsing/presenting student work. we are feeling energized and ready to face whatever comes next!

…And because nobody is sure what happens next, you’ll find both virtual and hybrid programming options listed for our older (10+) students 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 are smaller programs that we hope can take place on campus, but are planning for them to begin in an online classroom and/or switch between online and in-person as the session – and the 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
!

NOTE: Our Winter/Spring health and safety protocols will be posted later this fall while we wait to see how the pandemic continues to evolve. In the meantime, to read more about Fall 2020 COVID-19 developments at STAGES please click here, and contact us with questions any time.
