About Upstage

Upstage Theatre Schools provides an opportunity for kids in the greater Los Angeles area to express themselves in a giving, supportive, and incredibly fun environment. We believe that Theatre Skills are for Life.

A life, and specifically a childhood, in the theatre can give an individual skills that can carry them through adulthood. We offer programs throughout the year that teach responsibility, respect, creativity, stillness, humility, teamwork, and so much more.

Our students walk out of class with a focused confidence, which our highly trained staff helps guide them to find within themselves. Our teachers have a passion for musical theatre, and the knowledge and sensitivity to understand and work with any child’s personality.

We provide year round programs and summer camps in West LA,  South Pasadena and Oak Park/Agoura that allow our students a safe space to create. We are also now offering focused classes in voice, dance, and acting to hone these crafts and bring the kids to the next level of confidence and performance. In addition, our staff travels to various school’s in the area where we organize fully realized productions on school premises.

Every year for the past 20 years we meet new kids, and reconnect with past students. It warms every heart on the Upstage team that we can help make a difference in their day to day lives. We recognize each individual takes a step further out of their comfort zone through one of the most fun and courageous ways: Theatre!
