"Performance art is about joy, about making something that's so full of kind of a wild joy that you really can't put into words."

Laurie Anderson


The first iteration of Main Stage began as a DreamMaker project under the Ink People Center for the Arts in the fall of 2014. The organization was created with the purpose of exploring new musicals with local youth artists, debuting  segments of British Composer Ethan Lewis Maltby's Ada Lovelace in October of 2014. In 2015 Main Stage continued to grow, collaborating with local and guest adult performers to produce the first full production, Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts  (July, 2015). From 2015-2019 Main Stage continued to produce full scale community musicals  at the Arkley Center, in addition to programming a variety of youth performance opportunities throughout the year.


In 2021 Main Stage incorporated as a non-profit organization and now programs a regular three show season of Young Performers musicals at the Arkley Center annually. In addition to our Young Performers season, Main Stage produces concert productions, special events, and collaborative performance projects with both local and guest artists from all over the United States.
