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
