O ur mission each calendar year as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is to operate one or more theater arts programs for children ages 6 to 17 years old. This includes a teen mentoring component, wherein teenagers assume leadership roles such as assistant directors, technical directors or art department leaders in the summer theater arts program, and attend additional leadership skills workshops and training.

S ince 1998 StageKids! has provided a summer program that supplements arts programs offered during the school year. StageKids! is a safe, nurturing, fun, educational and creative local event in which all of the Big Sur youth population can engage during the summer months and return to each year to build upon the skills and experiences they have acquired. From year to year, many of the Stagekids! participants are returning students (who have “graduated” from the program and, as Teen Mentors, serve role models for the younger kids and interns or assistants to the Director and visiting teachers.

S tagekids! will also provide scholarships to children and young adults in the Big Sur community to attend educational camps and programs, such as music camps, sailing programs, computer training classes and programs, and foreign language classes and programs. StageKids! is dedicated to using theater arts to build confidence, encourage individual expression and ensemble teamwork, promote positive role modeling, and inspire leadership and mentoring. It is organized for the purpose of providing educational, cultural and leadership programs and activities for children and young adults in Big Sur, California, and its surrounding communities and counties.
