During the final week of classes, students will display a portion of what they've learned by participating in a “Class Act” for their families.

“Class Act”
Showcase Information

Theater is an art form, so change and evolution is encouraged! At Stage Kids, we are growing and developing new ways to meet the needs of our students, families and community. 

Our “Class Act” is an opportunity for kids to share what they’ve been learning in their classes. With over 100 students attending this spring, we will have more time for each class to share by having the friends and family attend on the final evening of each class rather than everyone coming together for one large event.

Please note your child’s last day of class, then mark your calendar to attend from 5:00-6:00 PM so they can show you what they’re learning (subject to change)!

Stage Kids Shows

Stage Kids shows are called Spotlight Productions—performed every year during spring and fall. Spotlight Productions are always appropriate for your entire family and are an excellent way to introduce your children to the arts at a young age!

ROALD DAHL'S
JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH JR.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale.  Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.
