Sage On Stage

Raue Center’s Sage Studio proudly introduces SAGE ON STAGE, an educational production program designed to take students from page to stage!

Students build on the performance fundamentals taught in Sage Studio classes and then put those skills into practice for an audience as part of the youth cast for a full-scale mainstage production,  honing their performance skills and rehearsing alongside professional actors and instructors.

All enrolled students will be part of the show!

A unique opportunity for local high school-aged students to learn many of the different aspects of theatrical production.  This program meets at the same time as SAGE ON STAGE production rehearsals and focuses on all the fun stuff behind the scenes–including scenic artistry, props, and costume crafts, lighting, and sound. Students also get to be part of the show itself as a run crew and get to experience the excitement of putting together the show from start to finish!

Students should also be available for all performance dates and tech rehearsals (see Timeline section below). All registered students participate in Sage On Stage productions!
