Stage One Family Theatre is awesome entertainment and a great value. The shows are affordable, but the greatest value is the work it does to introduce theatre to young audiences and energize that next generation of art consumers. Through visionary leadership Stage One Family Theatre has transformed its business model to attract more community support and provide FREE TICKETS to classrooms of students (K-6th grade) in a 21 county area. I've served on the board in a variety of capacities for the last 6 years. It's an organization that continues to evolve with the times and make me proud.

My family has been enjoying StageOne productions for years. The shows are high-quality, professional performances at ticket prices that are affordable to the average family of four. Of course, those two points alone aren't enough to encourage me to go to the theater-- I love StageOne plays because they present performances that are educational, engaging, and entertaining to children and adults alike. In addition to educating and entertaining my family, I know that my patronage of StageOne supports the Play it Forward program, which allows school children to see live theater performances at no ticket charge. There are so many students in my son's school who would never have the opportunity to see a live play if not for the Play it Forward program; I love visiting his class after they have been to the theater. You can really see how the experience changes their lives.
