"Anyone can participate. Everyone can succeed."
-Lindsay Pontius, Co-Founder, Courageous Stage
Courageous Stage is an innovative series of core literacy programs that use the theatre arts to engage students in an immersive education experience. Our programs are designed to bridge the opportunity gap and reach every single student. Courageous Stage programs align with the classroom curriculum and happen during the school day. Led by a network of internationally acclaimed Associate Artists, Courageous Stage offers multi-week programs for grades 4-12 that connect core literacy curriculum with the theatre arts, engaging both children and their teachers. Each interactive session is designed to teach language skills, through project-based learning, and culminates in live performance.
We piloted our first wildly successful program through Town Hall Theater's education department. Today, we're taking our revolutionary integrative arts program on the road.

Build core literacy, critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills;
Foster confidence, teach collaboration and promote civic engagement;
Engage every student with personalized learning using the theatre arts;
Complement existing curriculum to provide a project-based learning environment that unites students from diverse backgrounds.
