A call to adventure, aid from the gods, victory over crisis, and the journey home again. You can find a Hero’s Journey story embedded in the stories from cultures all around the world!
Spend the upcoming school year with your new STAGES friends learning about world mythology and theater-making – creating an original Hero’s Journey play together to be performed for your friends and family in May 2024. 
The STAGES Young Performers Ensemble is a fun, skill-building, theater program for students ages 9-11, serving as a bridge from the play-based programs for younger children to the main stage performance classes and ensembles at STAGES. The Young Performers Ensemble is a full, fall to spring commitment, meeting on Tuesdays from 4:00PM-5:30PM, beginning on September 26, 2023 and ending on May 7, 2024.

Frequently Asked Questions!

What is the Young Performer’s Ensemble? The Young Performers Ensemble will provide students with an age-appropriate, judgment-free space to learn about acting/theater and how stories become live stage productions. No experience is needed – Young Performers are expected to arrive with nothing but enthusiasm, openness to learning new things, and willingness to work collaboratively with ensemble members and teaching artists.

Will there be a final show? Yes. Families of returning Young Performers should note that while this season may include the same kind of informal family sharing days throughout the school year, the program will conclude with an exciting staged performance of the Ensemble’s original Hero’s Journey play in May!

My student would be a great fit for this program, but is not quite 9 years old yet. Can you make an exception? If a student’s 9th birthday takes place before December 31, 2023, STAGES will consider these requests. We ask that parents/caregivers use their discretion when inquiring about participation for younger students, especially with regards to maturity, general readiness, and ability to work collaboratively with other older students. Registrations for students falling outside of the program age range will need to be handled by STAGES, as our registration system will not permit you to do so on your own.

“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

“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
