ABOUT STAGES THEATRE COMPANY
Stages Theatre Company (STC) was founded in 1984 and has since grown to become the second-largest nonprofit children’s theatre in Minnesota. STC is one of several Twin Cities metro theatres serving youth and their families; however, STC is unique in that our productions primarily feature youth performers in major roles, alongside a smaller number of professional adult actors in supporting roles who also serve as mentors.
STC serves nearly 150,000 youth (ages 2-17) and family members annually through high-quality opportunities on stage, backstage, in the audience, and in the classroom. We engage diverse youth from the community with themes relevant to their lives and involve them in creating inspiring works featuring young people in meaningful roles.
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. Accessibility is a core value of Stages Theatre Company and we are committed to removing any and all barriers to accessing our programming for those who face challenges to participation.
Stages Theatre Company is dedicated to creating a space where diverse opinions, courageous dialogue, and local, national, and international community engagement is not only valued, but vital to our shared artistic and educational success. We make this pledge in the hope of curating a welcome home for all.
