Stages Theatre Company has existed for almost 40 years. Through those years we have been committed to our mission to enrich and educate young people. We have pledged to curate a welcome home for all. We are long-standing and proud members of TYA/USA. But there is more work to be done.

We are grateful for BIPOC in TYA, a grassroots group of Black Indigenous & People of Color TYA professionals, and their seminal publication – “Anti-Racist & Anti-Oppressive Futures for Theatre for Young Audiences.” It is a guidepost for the work ahead and Stages Theatre Company pledges to do the work.

Our commitment to our mission is embedded in the young people we serve. They are the future. The work we do today impacts what our world looks like tomorrow.

Stages Theatre Company is committed to systemic change through organizational change. We are dedicated to growing into a resource and leader in the field and investing in anti-racist and anti-oppressive long-term initiatives. Our young people deserve it.
