  • Annual fundraising event
  • Community conversations
  • Education first

"All the world's a stage. And all the men and women merely players; All have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages."
                                                                                                          ~As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII

The mission of World Stage Theatre is to provide exploration, experience, and exposure to underserved youth and adults interested in the performing arts while providing culturally relevant, live theater performances and theater arts education for the community.
