More Info

Alright, ya'll, the time has come. I have only dreamed of this moment for, um, I don't know, MY ENTIRE LIFE! 

The seed is planted

When I was a wee young thing, my grandma used to write a gossip column at the local paper. In it she would give shout-outs to local productions, and in kind, they would give her free tickets to their shows. I was her partner to all these productions. I was, maybe, six years old, and I thought that those giants on stage were the most magnificent beings that ever existed.

My little musical theater plant grows

When I first met Tamie, I told her, "someday we're gonna open a theater together," to which she would brush me off. I continued to suggest it for the next six years, and wouldn't you know, this year she finally agreed!

Harvesting my talent fruit

Now, we're building a different kind of theater. One that is built by the creatives. The set builders. The costumers. The directors. The kids. All of us together are what make The Stage whole. We are The Stage

The kids

This is really all about teaching our kids to have the utmost confidence in themselves, so that for two short hours, the rest of the world sees them on stage the way we see them every single day.

Opportunities to perform include:

#1 - Broadway Special, The Mini Stage Workshop, friends with special needs, 18 and under

#2 - Broadway Based, The Mini Stage Workshop, homeschooled performers 18 and under
