ABOUT STAGES THEATRE COMPANY

Stages Theatre Company was founded in 1984 and has since grown to become the second-largest nonprofit theatre for young audiences in Minnesota.

We believe that the arts are fundamental to child development and overall quality of life, and that every individual, regardless of economic circumstances, geography, or ability, should be able to enjoy the joy, wonder, and benefits of participation in the theatre arts.

REVIEWS

  • You have made me an advocate of all that Stages does for our community and the arts. I heartily thank you for everything you've done over the past 4 years with Brianna! And I will continue to support Stages theater as a community member who believes in the gift of theater. "  -Stages Grandparent

  • My daughter has grown so much as a person, actor, and student since she has become a part of Stages. I believe that these experiences are shaping her so much for her future and she has so much more drive and a sense of who she is. She seems ready to tackle anything she puts her mind to.
  • I have recommended STC to school theatre parents and young persons. I have told them how awesome the experience was for my child and the growth he gained.
  • We continue to be impressed by the quality of the programming at Stages, both on stage and in the classroom. We hope to continue to be involved throughout the rest of my daughter's high school years.
  • We are so grateful for your presence in the community and for the opportunities Stages provides for our young people. We are truly greatly impressed by the work that you do. Thank you!
  • It is truly a place for all.  There is a high degree of inclusion for all types of youth.
