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.

“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

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