BOAT-ART-SYT websiteWritten by: STACEY KOLOSKI  | Directed by: IAN CARLSEN
Developed by: STAGES Youth Theater

In the small seaside city of Belleport, Captain Sam is ready to embark on a brand new ship’s maiden voyage. Sam’s friends are a little skeptical; it’s only the first day of summer vacation, and Sam’s boat is made of cardboard! Undeterred, Captain Sam sets off on an adventurous journey filled with sea creatures, ocean encounters….and quite a bit of trash! With big heart and big imagination, The Cardboard Boat explores caring for our oceans, finding beauty in everyday things, and how one person can make a big difference.

“Inclusion, confidence, empathy, support. STAGES teaches life long lessons that go far beyond any stage. There is NO youth theater experience like it.”

Julie Fournier, STAGES Parent

“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
