Hello! Staged! produces stellar contemporary musical theatre and nurture young talent, onstage and off. We do this in two ways:
1.With our Young Director’s Program (previously The S! Conservatory Alumni Production) which is a directing opportunity for one special Alumni to work with professional mentors in the field to learn what is takes to put on a show. They are given the full responsibility of creating a full-length musical featuring S! Conservatory Alumni, current Students of S! Conservatory and professional actors.
2.With our pre-professional S! Conservatory program aimed to equip high school students with the tools to succeed in the business. Our mission is to nurture the next generation of theatre artists and changemakers. We believe in the transformative power of theatre, and we never put musicians in a pit. We Grow Artists… with Heart and Hustle. Staged! is located in Portland, Or as a residency company at the ArtsHub.
