REVEL! Happy Hour Marks New Beginning for STAGES Youth Theater
After ten years of running arts programming for children and young adults in southern Maine, STAGES Youth Theater is holding its first-ever fundraiser, REVEL!, to celebrate settling into a new space and transitioning to non-profit status.
REVEL!, on November 9, marks a new phase in the STAGES story. The year-round youth theater organization will continue to offer the chance for young people aged 5-18 to participate in fully-staged, professional-quality, all-student productions, but will now do so under a non-profit banner that better reflects the STAGES commitment to inclusion, community-building, and youth development.
What's more, STAGES is now operating in a new home at 202 Woodford St. in Portland. The dedicated space within Woodfords Congregational Church includes a black-box theater, rehearsal space, and extensive backstage areas.
"We're really happy to have all of our programs and productions under one roof which is a huge and exciting change for us," said Stacey Koloski, STAGES co-founder.
Join STAGES staff and supporters for a happy hour celebration that will include:
- the official unveiling of the new rehearsal and performance space at 202 Woodford St. in Portland;
- exciting presentations from theater artists about the STAGES model and mission;
- a short film featuring young STAGES performers;
- and wine, beer & snacks!
