The 2024 Stories to Stage Concept

The Stories to Stage show has a unique format this year which allows for the growth of our program with our High School Green Beans. They are able to join design, writing, assistant directing  cohorts. 

All stories will be weaved together in a full length musical. 1 set for all! That means more stories will be able to be showcased through script, song, and dance. We will be constructing the set during February vacation and have rehearsals as well for costume fittings during that time.

The premise is that there is a council of the mythological Gods/Goddesses/Magical Creatures. They have come together to hear stories and vote on which stories will make "The Book."


We will explore many concepts within the theme and welcome original creations of these characters and stories, twists on those we know from any culture from long ago. We are staying away from any from this century as to not offend. We will focus on ancient myth - Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Celtic.


It all depends on what the kids write and what the students are most interested in exploring consistent with the spirit of the Stories to Stage Program.

We are very excited about this new growth and are looking forward to the collage it creates this year!
