Support


Everything 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.

Ways YOU Can Support STAGES Youth Theater!

“Being able to think outside of the box and put yourself out there, especially as a child, teaches you how to be a confident, well-rounded person. I know I don’t know where I would be without youth theater.”

Eliza Skidgel, STAGES Alum & Employee

“STAGES brings together people who may not have met otherwise and allows kids to develop the skills to make friends in a setting outside of school. Without theater, some of my dearest friends would be strangers to me.”

Colby Marvin, STAGES Alum
