Located in Downtown Hopkins, Stages Theatre Company is one of the largest nonprofit theater producers in Minnesota and one of the largest professional theatres for young audiences in the country. Each year, we reach over 140,000 young people throughout our programming, education, main stage productions, residencies, and outreach.
For more than 30 years, the theater has significantly broadened its reach and scope, involving young people in the theatre arts through opportunities on stage, backstage, in the audience and in the classroom.
Today, Stages Theatre Company is recognized as a leader in theatre, education and production programming for children and young adults, and has received a number of regional and national awards and grants. The National Endowment for the Arts supports its work, awarding grants for both productions and school outreach programming. STC was the recipient of the 2001 Award for Arts Organization Excellence in Educational Programming from the Minnesota Alliance for Arts in Education; in 2004, the editors of MPLS.ST.PAUL Magazine selected STC as the “Best Kid’s Theater” in the Twin Cities; in 2008, Minnesota Parent Magazine voters chose STC as “Best Children’s Theatre” and in 2009 STC was awarded “Nonprofit of the Year.”
As Stages Theatre Company continues to grow, maintaining and developing a strong base of well-trained, committed volunteers has become increasingly important.
