Welcome to

A Magical Journey Thru Stages!

Creating fun, high-quality youth theater

On June 15, New York State lifted most of the state's remaining COVID restrictions, including those in place for theater and day camps.  Theaters are now operating solely under guidance from the CDC.  Based on their recommendations, masks are currently being worn indoors at STAGES by those both vaccinated and unvaccinated.

We are grateful live theater will once again be a part of this community - where our talented, focused, and committed youth performers can bring theater magic and joy to an audience!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

K PT

Stages is so welcoming and everyone is so friendly! My daughter did her show there over summer and loved it! She has been going there ever since. Even though COVID-19 is going around, Stages does a fantastic job keeping everyone safe and sticking to the New York State protocol. 

Erica Leavy Silloway

My kids have been doing shows at Stages for many years. They have learned so much since they started. The friendships they’ve made are strong and supportive. The creative teams are wonderful teachers and bring out the best in their casts! I would recommend Stages to anyone/everyone looking for children’s theater.

Jennifer Cummings

A Magical Journey Thru Stages is a hidden gem of Rochester! They draw spectacularly talented youth from all around the area and put on shows of an amazing caliber. You will harldy believe you are watching 1-12 graders perform...The directors do a phenomenal job of bringing out the best in each and every one of them.
