Upstage for Schools
We provide premier youth musical theatre experiences for schools in West L.A., South Pasadena, and Conejo Valley — currently, at Westwood Charter, Kenter Canyon Charter, Roscomare Road Elementary, Brookside Elementary, and South Pasadena Education Foundation. In addition, we offer multiple community programs and summer day-camps.
Westside School Programs
(Some programs may be offered directly via the school’s website.)
Confidence for life
Upstage Theatre Programs help kids make new friends, speak more clearly, move more easily and — creating together — break out of their shell.
Upstage provides after-school performing arts education for young people. Founded on the principle that theatre should be fair and fun, our productions feature ensemble casting, reasonable rehearsal hours, and a safe environment for the child to find their own level in their own time. Many of our students return year after year — we are their theatre family!

Happy Kids & Parents
Everyone becomes a family
“I’ve been to about five different performing arts schools, and only Upstage made me want to come back as soon as I can! At Upstage, everyone becomes a family, and I never felt uncomfortable around anyone. Upstage has taught me a lot, and given me fantastic memories!!”
— Victoria V.
Skills for life
“Upstage has been a wonderful fun place for my kids’ confidence to grow… not only on stage, but in life. They have gone from a little shy to receiving the highest marks in oral presentation with little effort. These are indeed skills for life.”
— Melinda S.
