Stages Theatre Company Extends Journey OUT OF THE BOX

Stages Theatre Company (STC), rings in the new year and continues the journey OUT OF THE BOX! STC has adapted and journeyed OUT OF THE BOX since the start of the pandemic, providing engaging and meaningful theatre experiences for youth. Building upon the continued success, STC has announced four more family favorites to enjoy in exciting new ways until the theatre can welcome everyone back safely.

"We are thrilled to continue to provide engaging and meaningful theatre experiences for youth & families into the new year", said Sandy Boren-Barrett, Artistic Director. "Our OUT OF THE BOX productions are not 'click and watch' experiences, but interactive adventures-allowing you to spend time together, unlocking participation into a journey that's unique to you."

When journeying with us OUT OF THE BOX with Stages Theatre Company, families receive a "box" of activities-books, games, recipes, and props that you can interact with before and after your production. You also receive exclusive limited-time access to a video on-demand production from Stages Theatre Company's archives.

From January through May, STC has your ticket to safe socially distant theatre experiences designed to engage your young people in storytelling adventures with THE DOT, STONE SOUP, LEGENDARY: A Detect the Story Adventure and TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES. All experiences are now on sale for $50 per household. Following purchase, patrons will receive instructions on how to pick up their OUT OF THE BOX experience and begin their Journey.
