“Thank you for making my last year of doing CenterStage Academy one of the best… Thank you for giving me a place where I can be myself and not have to hide….Thank you for everything.”
-Delaney Decker, Academy participant
The CenterStage Academy is a place where young people like Delaney can find a safe environment to be their best selves. Every student is a valuable participant, regardless of their level of theater exposure or experience.
As production costs are rising, we remain steadfast in our commitment to improving the theater experience without raising tuition fees. Our tuition fees cover experienced teaching artists, professional lighting designers, and sound engineers, as well as any and all other physical production costs—the cost of creating the set, scenery, props, costumes and anything else necessary to physically stage the production—all, of which, support the hard work our students put into each class day.
With your help, this year, we’re continuing to raise the bar. This year’s donations will go towards renting a backdrop to install in our theater. This backdrop will be coming from a professional theater company and will help us bring the Wizard of Oz to life on our stage.
