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.

“When you graduate from STAGES you wish you could do it all over again. STAGES helped me grow as a person and I truly miss it.”

DJ Nicholas, STAGES Alum

“My time at STAGES gave me a sense of belonging, and presented an entry point for something that I found myself so passionate about. These experiences helped to shape my love of the arts and appreciate the impact that the performing, and later visual, arts could have on my life.”
