There is nothing quite like the excitement of the theatre! Sitting in the car holding your ticket, knowing you might experience something quite magical....you never know what will happen! You walk in, and take your seat surrounded by other kids who are just as excited as you to be there. The lights dim, and the curtains open, and then you get lost in a world of storytelling, fabulous characters, music and excitement. It's just like watching a movie, only you are really in it!
Stage One Family Theater is in downtown Louisville and is proud to introduce kids to the arts and theater from an early age.
They offer stories and experiences that can entertain and develop kids from a young age as they move through into adulthood.
Every season offers a different theatrical experience for kids of all ages, and it's a great way to spend time as a family. From Broadway musicals, to classic dramas and fun side splitting comedies, the whole family is covered. They even had a Young Adult Series which focuses on teen and tween specific themes which are thought provoking and offer a way into conversations about any issues they might be facing.
For those littlest future thespians, the Children's Series brings fun and excitement to their favorite storybooks as they come to life on stage! They can be drawn into the lives of their favorite characters they know so well hearing about over bedtime.
For those aged 4 - 18 with the acting bug, they have summer camps where they can really come out of their shell and gain confidence.
