SUMMER PROGRAM REGISTRATION!


2022 SUMMER PROGRAMS

PLAY AT STAGES THIS SUMMER!

We can’t wait to find adventure and create theater with kids of all ages at STAGES Youth Theater during our 16th Summer Program! As we continue to navigate the challenges of the global pandemic, the 2022 Summer Program will include newly updated performance daycamp programs for kids ages 10+, and a teens-only musical theater production that rehearses in the evenings, outside of the daycamp parameters. We are also looking forward to welcoming our 7-9 year old campers back to in-person programs this summer!

We’ll continue to balance safety and FUN with smaller cast sizes and can’t wait to see in-person audiences at our summer performances (for the first time since 2019). No experience is needed to participate in a STAGES summer camp — all STAGES programs offer an inclusive and happy space for kids to be who they truly are. New and returning students will have FUN, learn new skills, and make memories with their STAGES friends!

STAGES is working toward our goal of providing expanded access to our programs through a scholarship process. In the meantime, we welcome your inquiries about how we can make our programs more financially accessible for your family. Please contact us any time!

Please read before registering…

We hope and expect to be able to hold these summer programs in-person at our theater next summer – including live performances for small in-person audiences. We also acknowledge the COVID-19 pandemic is still evolving 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 PARTICIPATE IN AN ONLINE 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.

SUMMER 2023 PROGRAMS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN LATE 2022. THANK YOU!

“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

“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
