All of my three children went through multiple years of the Summer Stage program, about eight years in all. They always looked forward to and enjoyed their time at Mainstage. And the productions were ... well ... amazing, regardless of the fact that they put them together in only 6 weeks. Through the years, it impressed me how Mainstage always put kids first - it was important that the kids were having a positive experience. The programs focus on giving kids not just exposure to the arts; they help kids be self-confidant, teach teamwork, and encourage them to support one another - skills that are valuable anywhere, not just in theater. Highly recommended.
We initially enjoyed it but their billing practices are horrendous. We haven’t been in months due to my husbands layoff from work and lack of income. He called and spoke to someone in September. We thought all was ok. A week before Christmas they take over $100 out of our account. This is very horrible and very shady business dealings. I called and left a message but no return call. Suppose I’ll have to file a formal complaint on the matter. Very disappointed as we had hoped to return when we got back on our feet financially but I won’t now after what they’ve done.
Aside from putting up high quality shows, Mainstage does amazing work with children, teaching kids ages 4-18 the skills they need to thrive in the world of theatre. The world needs more companies like this.
We go to the Blackwood Pumpkin Festival going on 5 years now! Amazing event for the community !!
main stage is too expensive
