Center Stage Jackson receives grant from the Jackson Literary and Art Association Endowment Fund at the Jackson Community Foundation to its Youth Theater program.Center Stage Jackson recently received a $1,000.00 grant from the Jackson Literary and Art Association Endowment Fund at the Jackson Community Foundation. The grant will help further Center Stage Jackson's mission to expose youth to and educate youth in the theatre arts by producing plays and musicals, creating a hands-on learning experience. Center Stage Jackson is thrilled to have the financial support of the Jackson Community Foundation. The Center Stage Jackson Youth Theater is entering its 13th season of serving the youth of Jackson County. Center Stage Jackson Youth Theater is for 3rd-9th graders in Jackson County. Youth are taught about nearly all aspects of a production, from auditioning, blocking, learning to show emotion on stage, applying stage makeup, and more. No experience is necessary! Youth Theater is a great way for youth to learn basic theater skills before trying high school or Main Stage productions. Two Youth Theater productions are put on each season: One play in November, and a musical in March, each performing three times over one weekend. The Jackson Community Foundation is dedicated to our Mission: We connect people and resources to causes that strengthen and build our community. For Jackson. For good. For ever.
