A Message from Upstage Theatre Schools

We hope you are doing well as we all maneuver this strange new reality. Upstage staff has been working hard to plan for the next weeks. We will continue to connect with and engage your children through acting, singing and dancing via online platforms. We are offering our classes via Zoom and the kids are having a lot of fun. Please look out for emails from our production staff — they contain lots of information that may help fill up these days at home.

We want you to know that we are committed to making sure each and every current program culminates in a show that is the same quality you are accustomed to with Upstage. While we are continuing classes via zoom and providing the best possible content, please know that these hours do not replace rehearsal hour for hour. Once things return to normal, we will meet as a staff and decide what it will take to pull together a great show and give your children the hours, the process and show they deserve and you expect.

We are also committed to our incredible Upstage staff. We are concerned for each of them and understand that their paychecks from Upstage put food on their tables and pay the rent. We are determined to do everything possible to support them by continuing to have them on payroll and help them in other ways as needed.

Thank you for all of the incredible emails of support you have sent. We will continue to stay in touch with you and your kids. We will be nimble and change things as they need to be changed.

Warm regards,
Julie & Adrian
