Measurable Outcome(s)

Communities we serve state they have little to no opportunities in theatre arts for our target age groups. Additionally, the staff of Stages/Safari is made up of mostly high school or college age individuals hope to have careers in theatre, music, or education, and this program provides them with valuable experience in managing, directing and working with, and simply being around school-aged children, which they are likely to continue doing for a large part of their lives.
