Stage to Stage, Inc. dba the Crescent City Lights Youth Theater transforms the lives of young people in the Greater New Orleans area by providing programming that brings together theater arts professionals and young people in a nurturing and multi-cultural environment to foster the learning of performing arts and life skills.
While the overall focus of CCLYT is on theater production, the program emphasizes the development of positive life and job skills in the formative years of youth.
The impact of Stage to Stage programming through the Crescent City Lights Youth Theater is trans-formative for creative children. Through our programming, we impact the students’ lives through the following goals:
Motivating in each child a love and appreciation of the performing arts;
Increasing a child’s knowledge of skills in the areas of acting, voice, movement, and theater production;
Developing in each child a sense of responsibility, discipline, and self esteem;
Encouraging self expression through the use of theater arts;
Uniting each member of the theater ensemble with the responsibilities of teamwork;
Guiding each child to a better future through enhanced social and life skills;
Appreciating for their individual talents and those around them;
And, most importantly, learning life and job skills by having fun!
