When you give today, you secure the missionof TGS for tomorrow.

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic continues in different forms and variations. Schools, places of work, and organizations much larger than ours continue to be directly impacted. We here at the Growing Stage are no different. From the start, over eighteen months ago, the Growing Stage has prioritized the safety and health of our artists, both child, and adult. Due to a close-contact episode during our run of The Story of the Nutcracker, we have decided to cancel our final weekend of performances. This decision comes at a significant financial cost for us, but it is one that is supported by both the Board and staff of the Growing Stage.

However, even with speedbumps like this, and thanks to your incredible support, The Growing Stage is reopening strong. We are so grateful to you for supporting us through the past year and we hope we can count on you again to keep this momentum going. Your gift allows our mission to continue, despite the obstacles we have faced and the challenges that remain. It’s our passion to continue to provide the magical experience of live theatre.

Please consider a donation to The Growing Stage today and allow us to continue our work in opening hearts, inspiring minds, and igniting imaginations.

We cannot wait to welcome you home!
