Imagination Stage's work is informed by our core mission to offer theatre and arts education experiences that nourish children’s imaginations, inspire them to embrace the complexity and diversity of their world, and help them to overcome their challenges through hope, courage, and, above all, creativity. We believe that every child needs the arts in their life. Arts participation offers a valuable tool for promoting understanding, facilitating learning, building awareness, increasing self-esteem, spurring critical thinking, providing appropriate outlets for emotion and quite simply for enjoyment. We rely on the generosity of our circle of donors to sustain the productions and programs that play such an important role in the lives of young people. Your contribution truly makes a difference.
