For support of The Growing Stage's professional artistic and educational programs during the 2014-2015 season.
The mission of The Growing Stage is to nurture the development of the performing arts through education and create, produce and perform works that engage the entire family. Founded in 1982, we provide exceptional access to the arts for children and their families through Main Stage productions, school day matinees, classes and special initiatives in our facility, the historic Palace Theatre in Netcong, as well as through touring performances, residencies and workshops statewide. The Growing Stage is the only theatre-for-young-audiences company in New Jersey that owns its own facility, and our restoration of the circa-1919 Palace Theatre, a 17-year, $2+ million effort supported by individuals, businesses, foundations and government, highlights the important role of the arts in community revitalization. Our accessible, inclusive theatrical and arts education programs give young people unique opportunities to participate in the arts and reap the life-enhancing benefits of that participation.
