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

There’s no place like home, and we have found ours.  We have negotiated an opportunity to purchase our current studio in the heart of downtown Mishawaka.  I am thrilled to share this news with you, we love our location on Main Street. This will not only allow us to stay at the same location for many years to come, but also allow us to tailor the space to meet our needs and to expand into the upstairs space for further storage. In order to make this opportunity a reality we need your help!  We need to raise an additional $15,000 by the end of the year for a down payment and repairs on the building.

As a supporter of The Main Stage I am asking you to partner with us in paving the future of The Main Stage. Whether you are a parent who has seen their child blossom and grow through our programs, a past performer who was given opportunities to shine onstage, or a theater lover who has enjoyed our productions, I know that you are excited about this opportunity to help Main Stage pave the way to our future and continue to impact lives. 

As part of our fundraising efforts to make this location our permanent home we are asking that you help us “pave the future” by purchasing an inscribed brick. I am sure you will be thrilled to see your name supporting the arts and Main Stage in our entryway for years to come.

For each donation of  $150 a 4x8 brick will be engraved with the inscription of your choice and used to pave the rear (main) entrance to our building. 

For each donation of $300, a 8x8 brick can be engraved.

We look forward to seeing this entrance area transformed as it is paved with names of our supporters. To purchase your brick, please complete the attached form and mail it with your donation to the PO Box listed below. (Businesses can also purchase 8x8 bricks with their logo engraved on them for $500.)

Your support will not only help pave the future of The Main Stage but is also tax deductible. If you wish to make a cash donation with or without purchasing a brick visit TheMainStageInc.org/donate or you may mail your donation to our PO Box address. No donation is too small to make an impact. We appreciate any support that you are able to offer.
