Who We Are
Founded in 1998 with just 12 students, Stage Right! currently has an enrollment that averages 300+ students year round. The school is based on the tenet that professional artists instructing, mentoring, and working alongside student actors profoundly affects their development. Our students are taught by professionals and then are given the opportunity to work with them on stage. Our students have the unique opportunity to work with industry professionals year-round, in various classes, shows, and masterclasses that promote this partnership and further student growth. This synergy creates highly successful artistic atmosphere that nurtures our young actors both on and off the stage.
