_ On Stage Theatrical Productions, Inc provides collaborative opportunities for professional artist, amateurs and students of the arts. We are committed to superlative instruction, performances, and youth development.
GIVE KIDS A CHANCE- is a performing arts program offered to school age children in the Fall River Public Schools as an after school program. Designed to educate and introduce public school children to a variety of dance forms. Give Kids A Chance- offers students from all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds a chance to take lessons in dance, voice, musical theater and drama. On Stage will offer free instruction along with classes in acting and musical theater, to elementary age-high school children from Fall River who otherwise would not have the opportunity to experience the performing arts as part of their education.
Target Audience: children who would never have the opportunity to be involved in the performing arts due to financial instability.
Students in the program will be given access to a world they may never have been able to visit on their own. The discipline and self esteem they learn through the performing arts will translate into other areas of their lives such as; their school work, the games they play, how they relate and contribute to other people. After 16 years of existence the project speaks for itself with successful High School graduates now attending College with full academic scholarships. Arts=Discipline.
On Stage is proud to have a 100% high school graduation rate with students who attend our program. Our city high school currently has a 48% high school graduation rate with students who enter the high school as freshman.
We also currently have a 98% college graduation rate with 2% of our students entering the ROTC program for scholarship opportunities, proving that our program provides the skills needed for students to become successful adults in the community.
