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

The arts has a transformative impact on people. Surmountable data proves youth involved in fine, performing, or visual arts are more likely to succeed academically, socially, learn to work in groups, problem solve and are willing to take chances.  Ninety percent of the youth in our program do just that.
