Stages produces inclusive, high-quality theater programs for a diverse group of 800+ students in the Greater Rochester Area while engaging approximately 8,000 audience members annually.


We teach professional theater for students who have a passion to perform or be involved behind-the-scenes.


At Stages, students will be surrounded by talented cast-mates and crew from all over Monroe and neighboring counties.


Our programs include 9 full theater productions, summer camps, improv troupes, technical training, open mic nights, and specialized workshops & classes each year.


Our dedicated staff, artistic teams, and volunteers work cohesively to support students: expanding their creative talents, building self-confidence, and encouraging personal growth.


Tuition assistance is available for economically disadvantaged youth.


Youth also assist with the technical aspects of our shows, including stage management, light design, sound design, costume design, and stage crew.


Our teams have extremely high expectations of our students and require dedication, commitment, and teamwork to make a show successful.


In order to teach and model the importance of philanthropy, we collect items during every performance to benefit local youth charities.

Safety Statement

We are grateful to be back on stage where our talented, focused, and committed youth performers can bring theater magic and joy to an audience!  


Once again circumstances surrounding the pandemic are changing.  Stages must navigate the ever-evolving COVID-19 protocols for masking as New York State lifts the mask requirement for schools effective March 2, 2022.  Our primary concern is to offer a safe environment for kids to escape into the magical world of theater.  To accomplish this we rely on the current CDC, New York State, and Monroe County COVID-19 statements.


To best serve the youth in our community, Stages theater is mask-optional. This will allow parents to decide whether their children should wear a mask when participating in our programs.      


For summer camp participation and for audience members vaccination is highly recommended.


This pandemic journey has brought questions without definitive answers, opinions across a broad spectrum, and different positions on health issues that have caused divisions in our community.  Stages decisions are welcomed by some and condemned by others.   Our current protocol allows each person and parent to make their own health decisions; and we encourage everyone to respect the positions of others on masking and vaccination.    


We appreciate your patience, compassion and understanding.  We look forward to seeing talented young performers on our stage.   


These protocols are subject to change, effective immediately, as necessary based on changing circumstances.
