OneStage Productions, Inc. is a non-profit performing arts organization which serves Washington area teens and adults as its’ participants. Participants are engaged in areas of the performing arts including visual arts, dance, drama, and film. OneStage Productions serves the purpose of providing individuals, who would not otherwise have the resources to benefit from the arts, with the opportunity to develop and showcase their performing talents and capabilities within a professional environment. Through reading and writing dialogue, memorization, acting, and peer mentoring, teens are provided with the academic and social enrichment needed to be successful in education. Through collaboration, team building, and relationship development, adults gain the social and business reinforcement needed to be successful professionally and emotionally
Artistic and performance instruction is administered through year-round workshops where participants learn the fundamentals of acting and staging a production or short film. Further instruction and guidance is given exclusively to teens as they participate in creative sessions in which they write and produce their own original stage performance or short film.
OneStage Productions, Inc. presents an original stage production, at least three times per year that are performed for local communities. These performances are presented at venues such as The Atlas Performing Arts Center, The Lincoln Theatre, The Kennedy Center and Washington Area Community Centers.
Stage performances that are teen written and produced are presented at local schools and learning institutions as a means of educating other students and young audiences. Original teen written performances deal with issues such as self-esteem, self-awareness, peer-pressure, conflict resolution, friendship, family and domestic issues and decision-making.
