Little Stars for ages 2-3

Friday programming for your little star! Creative play (theatre, music, dance and art) helps young children develop their senses through exploration and discovery.

Watch your little one develop their inner artist and sense of self. Let your little star’s creativity grow! With units in theatre, music, dance, and art, your little one’s world will expand rapidly.

Rising Stars for ages 4-5As your little one gets curious with their creativity, bring them to Rising Stars Academy! Young four and five year olds have naturally large imaginations and flairs for the dramatic… let’s give it a shape and connect it to curriculum! Friday mornings at Stages Theatre Company will include connecting to peers with kinesthetic play and learning, trying on new characters and fantastic settings, and a beginning literacy exploration as each week is connected to a book. Let’s sing, dance, act, explore, expand, and inspire excitement with your Rising Star!
