McCarter Theater First Stage Program
At First Stage, we focus on each student’s personal and artistic growth. Through the art of theater, we foster the development of social skills, self-confidence, team work, commitment, empathy, and the courage to take risks in a safe environment. First Stage students have the opportunity to work with professional artists, directors, and educators who encourage exploration and teach theater fundamentals to the interests and abilities of each student. Our goal is to create an inclusive community where students and their families forge a lifelong investment in the arts. Whether your student has years of theater experience or is investigating theater for the first time, we hope you will join us and become part of the First Stage family. We promise a theatrical and fun-filled year!
Science is the disciplined application of curiosity. scienceSeeds reinforces children’s natural curiosity and creates an on-going dialogue between children and their peers, parents and teachers. We gently help children organize their investigations to achieve interesting and consistent results (which is the goal of "the scientific methods") while encouraging creative thinking and unorthodox solutions. scienceSeed's activities provide fun experiences grounded in the process of scientific discovery and discourse.
