"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 arts education for the community.
The arts have a transformative impact on people. Surmountable data proves youth involved in fine 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.
