The Complete Package

Cultivate a successful program while simplifying your administrative schedule at the same time!

Mainstages Theater ina Box

Our process-oriented, development-driven approach results in impactful and easy-to-implement theater programs across the nation.

There are two tracks to our Theater Program:

  1. Camp Services: Program partnerships with sleep-away and day camps during the summer.
  2. Afterschool Services: Session-based enrollment programs ideal for schools and organizations.

Each track is divided into five components:

  • Staffing & Training
  • Program Development
  • Production Supplies
  • Marketing & Publicity
  • Supervision & Support

Every program is different, so we customize based on the needs of each community. 

Staffing & Training

Success Starts With Great Staff!

Mainstages Theater ina Box

We're dedicated to making sure your Theater Program has the best staff available! That's why we hand select your staff member from our pool of talented applicants based on applicable skills and relevant teaching experiences.

Our Staff Members:

  • are professionals working as educators in their field, often with previous camp/school experience;
  • are confident administering a curriculum and communicating to reach goals;
  • are goal driven, take initiative, and successfully know how to negotiate "drama" both onstage and off;
  • possess a creative teaching style and innovative problem solving skills.

Here's how we get there:

  • Oversee overall program design & strategy of program.
  • Facilitate conference calls, webinars and one-on-one conversations with program staff.
  • Create lesson and activity plans that include an activities track for everyday periods and a performance track for clubs and intensives.
  • Develop itineraries and program outlines that build upon previous skills and applications.
  • Integrate relevant mission driven themes and activity resources into curriculum.
