About Youth Education

Skills for Theatre…Skills for Life

KIDSTAGE, a creative youth development program, uses theater arts to build critical life skills in each participant and promote positive identity development. In KIDSTAGE classes and rehearsals, our techniques encourage youth voice and leadership, creativity, collaboration, problem solving, concentration, public speaking, and creating a community of belonging. While some students are on a path to Broadway, all students are improving their futures and increasing self-confidence through involvement in KIDSTAGE and our Technical Theatre Program (TTP).

Village Theatre’s Youth Education programs serve thousands of young people throughout the Puget Sound. Available to all regardless of the ability to pay, the programs provide healthy out-of-school time activities and stimulate learning through the arts in schools.  We work to address disparities that disproportionatley affect specific youth populations through training, hiring and programming. Village Theatre KIDSTAGE is committed to creating a pro-equity environment to ensure a safe and brave space to explore and grow.
