How You Can Support STAGES!

Every decision we make at STAGES Youth Theater is based on whether or not it moves forward our mission to unlock self-discovery in young people through the transformative power of theater.  
The generosity of our supporters and friends sustains our programs that play a critical role in helping young people take risks, build confidence and self-esteem, and find their voice during these important formative years.

Quite simply, you and your contribution make this work possible.

“I have very low self confidence but through STAGES I managed to find self worth and pride in what I could accomplish. STAGES changed my entire life.”

“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.”
