At Upstart Crow Studios Children’s Theatre every child plays a role. We offered a theatre arts experience in a safe and inclusive environment to 450 youth last year. As more families are discovering what Upstart Crow has to offer children in our community, we need support from the community more than ever. Increased enrollment and expanded scholarship opportunities are dependent on donations and gifts from fans, friends, and families like you. 


We need your support! 

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that the social value of art has never mattered more. As schools close, physical distancing requirements are enforced, and longstanding arts organizations shut their doors, families need access to enrichment opportunities that are safe, affordable, and accessible. Most importantly, in the creative work they undertake with others, youth are practicing hope; through the arts, they are actively combatting feelings of isolation, helplessness, and disconnection.


Upstart Crow Studios is committed to providing access to performing arts programming so that children in our community can continue to play, learn, and develop vital skills that we know dramatically improve the quality of their lives.  By ensuring all youth can access and benefit from high quality performing arts experiences and by supporting young people as they uncover their potential and cultivate a deeply-held passion for the arts, Upstart Crow continues to fulfill a vital need in our community.

We need community support more than ever before from people who value youth programming that builds confidence and leadership in settings that encourage differences, accepts everyone and promotes diversity. 

Your gift in this time of unprecedented crisis in the arts helps us maintain critical programimng and scholarship opportunities as well as cover our ongoing overhead until we are once again, able to return to the stage. For now, The Show Must Go... Online!
