We are so excited about all the things happening at STAGES! We have our cast set for our upcoming production of Cinderella and we are having a great time with all the wonderful Saturday workshops being taught by some great theatre professionals in Oregon!
Please take a moment to read this quick newsletter and be part of the STAGES family!

Raves for Cheaper by the Dozen!
The remarkable story of the Gilbreth family came to life on stage due to an amazing cast and great director. We enjoyed sold out houses with audiences delighting in the antics of a family of 12 children! Thanks to all of your support in making this show a success!
STUDENTS LOVED THE STAGE COMBAT CLASS
Mr. John Armour, a well respected stage combat instructor engaged the class of 25 students in a wonderful 4 hour class of learning hand to hand combat and how to respond to such "agression" on the stage! Given the many gasps heard from the parents observing parts of the class, the realism was spot on to the delight of the class! We hope to bring Mr. Armour back to teach a Stage Combat Class 2 in the near future.
A big thank you to the Cultural Coalition of Washington County for the generous grant that allows us to host such wonderful professional level classes for our young people!
