‘Save the Stage Door’

We are thrilled to announce that the goal for our ‘Save the Stage Door’ kickstarter campaign was met successfully! Now we can enhance our theatre arts program! Additional lighting and stage equipment will go a long way to developing future productions. Above all, we strive to open the ‘Stage Door’ to a larger number of participants.

We hope you continue to support Stage Door Productions
