Second Stage is a special opportunity for students in grades 6-9 to create and star in their own musical production.  This year’s show, Broadway’s A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD, follows the woodland adventures of two amphibious friends, a worrywart toad and a perky frog, with their assorted colorful hopping, crawling and flying companions, over the course of a year.

Summer Second Stage Dates:           August 3-14, with performances on Saturday, August 15

Registration info coming soon!

A Project Partner is a donor who gives — or pledges to give — $1000 or more during a single fiscal year. Our fiscal year aligns with the school-year, and we were supported by 11 Project Partners during the year that ended in August. For this year, our goal is to encourage 15 or more supporters to give $1000 or more. We’ve chosen 12/13/14 to bridge the gap between 11 and 15!

This Saturday, when the calendar sees its last sequential date in a LONG time, please know that every dollar counts in support of the work of The Young People’s Theatre Project, and remember us in your year-end giving at whatever level you are able.

Please also consider becoming a Project Partner, with a gift of $1000 or more during the 2014-2015 fiscal year. You’ll receive two seats at our annual Cabaret and Fundraiser in May, premium seating at our summer shows, and special mention in our programs. But, most of all, you’ll know that your support is helping young people discover their next stage.

Join us on the journey and partner with The Project into 2015. We’re counting on you!


Camp 2014 – GoPro video by counselor Anna Copic

One of our spectacular Camp Counselors, Anna Copic, wore her GoPro Camera EVERYWHERE at camp this year. And this was the result. Worth. Every. Minute. Ever wonder why we all say camp is our favorite two weeks of the year?   This is why.  Thanks, Anna!
