Our Digital Stage

Our Digital Stage

While our current live performances and traditional, in-person Theater Academy classes and in-school curriculum are postponed as manage through the COVID-19 pandemic and its necessary restrictions, we have created a number of virtual resources to keep young people engaged from the safety of their homes. We look forward to connecting with you regularly from this digital stage.

Until we can convene together again, we invite you to explore our new online resources to keep our young people and families connected and engaged with the transformational power of theater.
