Partner with Us!

Stone Soup’s Theatre’s educational programs focus on giving each young actor the tools they need to succeed on stage. All our student productions are actor-centered: our students are the true stars of our shows! We take focus away from the technical aspects of theatre and put it back in our young actor’s imaginations. We use suggestive costuming, sets and props to enable our student performers to bring the world of the play to life.
