Hear what people have to say about The Main Stage, Inc.!

"After seeing all of my Main Stage family tonight at the show, it reminded me who really had a big hand in helping me be confident enough to follow my dreams. From our first meeting when I was incredibly small to our second meeting at Legally Blonde, Jon West has always been an amazing teacher because he has weird way of throwing you into something you might think you wouldn't be able to do, but it working out great in the end somehow. It's what makes The Main Stage such a great place to learn and grow." - KL

"I fell in love with The Main Stage while waiting in the lobby at my daughter's very first rehearsal! I had to fight the tears welling up in my eyes as I listened through the door to a group of children singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow." Five shows later I've learned it's more than just the music! Every time my daughter walks through the doors of The Main Stage she is warmly welcomed, and so loved. We have become part of a family! Great shows! Great people!" - MS

"I can't thank you enough. If it weren't for you, and for Main Stage, I don't know what direction my life would be heading right now. All I know is, the only time I'm truly happy is when I'm performing, and that started on your stage. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better. I'll never forget." - JB

At The Main Stage, we believe strongly in offering opportunities for children to be a part of live performance.  Our children's program is set up with the goals of producing a full musical to be presented to the community through a high quality theater learning experience in our classes. In our Children's theater productions, children will not only learn songs, dances, and lines to put on a show, but they will build character, confidence, and skills that they can use in their everyday life. Not only do  they walk away knowing they performed in a successful performance, but they will leave with increased confidence and a sense of community.

Through our student theater "classes" all enrolled students receive instruction in singing, acting, and dancing as well as experiencing the pride of performing a top quality show at the completion of the classes.  The Main Stage, Inc. typically does two Student Theater productions each year.  These productions are open to students K-12.  There is an enrollment fee to be in the program which helps to cover the costs of not only the classes, but producing the musical from rights and royalties, and theater rental to sets, music, and costumes. 

Our staff are all not only experts in all aspects of musical theater; they are also all educators who work in area schools.  They know how to work with and teach students and this is evident by seeing the end results of our classes- our theater shows.  We incorporate all school age children into our shows for the reasons of the older students helping to mentor and guide the less experienced students.  It is fun to see the bonds and sense of community that is built within our classes through the process of learning a show.
