Support Us

When children participate in the arts, they develop essential skills for life—creativity, resourcefulness, empathy and imagination. At The Growing Stage, we give children and families unprecedented access to the arts and provide unique opportunities to learn, play and grow.

To keep our productions and educational programming reasonably priced and accessible to all, The Growing Stage actively seeks contributions from corporations, foundations and individual donors. Every single gift makes a difference and positively impacts our programming.

The Impact Of Your Gift:

Your gift to The Growing Stage has an immediate, positive impact. When we say “Every single gift makes a difference”—we mean it! Your contribution helps fund creative, innovative programs that invite children and families to participate in the arts, including:

  • Professional theatre productions: Main Stage productions range from time-honored classics to new, original works that entertain, educate and enlighten our young patrons and their families.
  • Arts education classes: We offer classes for young people ages pre-school through high school, all taught by professional teaching artists who are selected for their ability to mentor and inspire their students.
  • New initiatives: Both our Studio Series and New Play-Reading Festival were created through this giving opportunity to our educational offerings. New programming provide fresh, inventive programming for performing artists and families. Contact us to learn of what dreams were striving to bring to life!
  • Arts-in-Education initiatives: We offer Main Stage Matinees at the Palace for local school groups, and our touring company “brings the show on the road,” presenting Tales from the Garden at schools throughout the state.

In-kind donations are often needed for general operations and productions. Please call Executive Director, Stephen Fredericks at (973) 347-4946 if you have a product or service you would like to donate.

Every single gift makes a difference! Thank you for your support!
