Join us for these BIG stories of the LIttlest of Heroes!
Pint Sized Power
Who is the strong one, the leader, the boss?
Who makes the game plan? Who can’t accept the loss?
It’s not just the old one, the big one, the tall.
Sometimes it’s the young one who’s smartest of all!
The Growing Stage features these powerful kids.
Watch what they can do, and watch what they did!
So if you feel tiny or if you feel small,
Don’t fret about muscles. Don’t worry at all!
The Growing Stage artists have stories to share
Of pint-sized and powerful children who dare!
-Laura Petrie, TGS Veteran Artist

Let’s Get Started!


Let’s start by watching the trailer of our recent production of Roald Dahl’s MATILDA

Let’s LEARN about Pint Sized Power!

Whether you are tall or small, old or young, we all have qualities inside of us that allow us to make a difference, to solve a problem, to lift others up, to dare to try! On this episode of TGS TV, we focus on BIG stories about the littlest of heroes. Through self-determination and a little bit of spunk, these pint-sized champs discover that they have the power inside to help save the day!
This week, we are featuring two productions, MATILDA and REALLY ROSIE, powered by pint-sized powerhouses and written by two of our favorite authors. Many of their tales feature young people who, through grit and determination and a little bit of know-how, become BIG heroes in their own lives! Do you know who they are? Introducing…..Roald Dahl and Maurice Sendak!

Help Us Continue to Offer Programs Like TGS TV:

The Growing Stage is 501-c-3 designated organization by the IRS and registered with the Office of the NJ Attorney General. Urgent contributions are needed to keep our limited programming flowing to the young people and families throughout northern New Jersey that depend on The Growing Stage – The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey. Funding will not only support the theatre’s efforts in keeping its staff employed and ensure that productions can resume as soon as possible for its artists – it allows for efforts such as this to be developed and sustained throughout this current health crisis. Help is needed, perhaps more than ever, to keep the creativity open to our families while the theatre doors are shut. As always, your consideration is appreciated.
