Louisville’s professional home for theatre for young audiences, Stage One is one of the country’s top rated children’s theatres. Recently entering its 63rd annual season, Stage One finds its inspiration in challenging works relevant to the tastes and issues facing youth in modern times. From the light-hearted fun of Junie B. Jones and If You Throw a Pig a Party, to challenging adaptations of Antigone and John Lennon and Me, Stage One’s yearly agenda offers exceptional stagings for all age groups.
Working closely with the curriculum of local school districts, Stage One’s education program extends through extensive matinee performances (reaching over 100,000 audience members each year) to a Professional Development program aimed at providing further training in the humanities to teachers. Students are further encouraged to explore their imaginations with Stage One’s in-house DramaWorks camps, offering classes in all aspects of the theatre to ages 4-18.
