Confidence for Life…
Upstage Theatre Programs help kids gain confidence, make new friends, speak more clearly, move more easily and, creating together, break out of their shell.
Upstage provides community, after-school, and summer day-camp 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!
A Trusted Partner
Upstage has been serving the greater LA community since 1999. We provide after-school youth musical theatre experiences for Westwood Charter Elementary, Kenter Canyon Charter, Roscomare Road Elementary, Horace Mann School, Warner Avenue, Saint Mark School, Brookside Elementary, Red Oak Elementary, Medea Creek Middle School, and South Pasadena Education Foundation — in addition to multiple community programs and summer day-camps not connected with a specific school.
Upstage hires and trains highly qualified Directors, Musical Directors, Choreographers and Production Managers. Each staff member has undergone an extensive background check through the Department of Justice. Our staff is professional, compassionate and wholeheartedly committed to the success of the students. Many are award-winning actors in their own right, and all share a love of teaching musical theatre to children of all ages.
