Welcome to

A Magical Journey Thru Stages!

Creating fun, high-quality youth theater

Although theaters in New York State remain closed for performances, A Magical Journey Thru Stages is excited to offer a number of theater enrichment opportunities! Our offerings include scene studies, dance, acting, improv, and technology workshops.  Students can pick from both in-person and virtual options. If and when theaters are given the green light for performances, we will be ready to welcome students back to experience the high quality, fully produced shows we are known for.
