SUMMER PROGRAM REGISTRATION!


SUMMER AT STAGES!

Everyone is welcome at STAGES!

Join the fun at STAGES Youth Theater when we kick off our 16th Summer Theater Program in June 2023! Kids kindergarten through high school will have joyful opportunities to unlock self-discovery through guided dramatic adventures, role-play/cosplay, and a variety of mainstage performance opportunities (plays & musicals)!

No previous experience is needed and no auditions are required! Registration for all summer programs is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis (casting for mainstage shows takes place as part of an informal, FUN, meet-and-greet event and everyone receives a role).

Registration NOW OPEN for Summer 2023 Programs!

STAGES theater camps have limited capacity, and early registration is strongly encouraged to avoid disappointment later. We invite you to browse our Summer 2023 programs below, and follow the links to more information about registration, refund policies, financial assistance, and COVID updates at the bottom o the page.

PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING…

We expect to be able to hold these summer programs in-person at our theater next summer – including live performances for in-person audiences. We also acknowledge the COVID-19 pandemic may continue to evolve 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 A STAGES PROGRAM IF YOU/YOUR STUDENT ARE UNWILLING TO FOLLOW ALL STAGES COVID PROTOCOLS, INCLUDING THE PARTICIPATION IN AN ONLINE/DIGITAL 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.

“The best part about having my child in STAGES was it was a place where she could go and be herself. She was accepted and loved for who and what she is. As the parent of a special needs child that is invaluable.”

Mark Barrasso, STAGES Parent

“I’m not sure I would have wanted my children anywhere else during their formative years, other than with STAGES or at performing arts related programs. The supportive atmosphere was like no other.”

Beth Doane, STAGES Parent
