Second Stage Programs

DivaOur new Second Stage Program is the culmination of two pilot programs for high school youth that we have been working on and refining over the past few years.

Our Second Stage Programs are performed on the Zehring Stage in the lower level of our Victoria Street theatre. Tickets are just $3 or $5 each, and Members are always free!

The programs include W.A.T.T.—the Writer-Actor Teen Theatre, and Open Mic Nites.


W.A.T.T. is a semester-long program especially for youth who want to write and perform their own material in a collaborative environment. Working with a SteppingStone Theatre artist-mentor, over the course of two months, these talented teens devise and perform their own work.
