Sage on Stage presents: A Christmas Carol: A Holiday Pantomime

Sage Studio is proud to collaborate with Raue Center and Williams Street Rep on our brand-new production program, Sage on Stage! Students will spend two weeks honing their musical theatre skills and learning all about the “behind the scenes” of what goes into a mainstage Raue Center show–while working right alongside our cast of professional Chicagoland actors.

Students will get to build on all the great performance fundamentals we teach in the classroom, then put those skills into practice for an audience as part of the youth cast for our very own full-scale production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL on the Raue Center stage!

Dates: NOV 26 – DEC 29
Tuition: $150
Ages: 7-18
Registration deadline: November 9.
REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW SOLD OUT! Email us at to be added to our waitlist.  Registration is still open for our January Sage Studio classes. Click here to learn more!
