Celebrate Stages 2023

Join us on Sunday, April 30, 2023!

We are so excited to welcome everyone to Celebrate Stages! 

Our annual entertaining, family-friendly event to celebrate who we are and what we do is being held LIVE AND IN-PERSON this year on Sunday, April 30,2023, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. This year, due to the increasing size of our audience, Celebrate Stages will be held at Allendale Columbia School's 320-seat Curtis Performance Center!!


Enjoy time with Stages friends, see performances by Stages artistic staff and students, discover the show lineup for next season, honor a super volunteer, helped raise funds for our very special youth theater, and more! Refreshments will be served at Intermission.


Event Program

  • Welcome 

  • Performances by Stages Artistic Staff and Students

  • Announcement of the 2023-2024 Season

  • Presentation of the Standing Ovation Award to Beth Gundy for outstanding dedication to youth theater

    • Since moving to town four years ago, Beth has become an invaluable part of the Stages family. She has worked tirelessly as a Costume Designer, Costume Loft Organizer, and collaborator in many shows and projects. Beth even puts on her baking cap for tech weeks and parties creating amazing treats.  Join in celebrating this super volunteer!

  • Presentation of the Classic Michael Lynch Award

  • Raise funds to help Stages reach its $10,000 goal

  • Recognize our Graduating Seniors

What a great year we have had, with live in-person theater performances, new classes, and summer camps! We hope you'll agree that Stages provides valuable experiences to our students as they develop self-confidence, teamwork, empathy, friendships, and theater skills. 

Unlike many other local youth theater programs, A Magical Journey Thru Stages is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to provide high-quality youth theater experiences to the children in the Greater Rochester area. We have successfully pursued grants and other assistance to help with many of our staffing and facility needs, but as many of the COVID-era grants are expiring, donations from individuals and organizations is important. 

Your tax-deductible gift to Stages helps us:

  • buy production rights for next year's shows

  • pay our student-focused artistic staff

  • promote our high-quality family-friendly programs

  • provide a safe and inclusive environment in which everyone can thrive

  • invest in technology to improve performances, parent experience, and operations.
