Hey There! 👋
Welcome to our little corner of Broadway right here in Eastern NC!
Who We Are. Kids On Stage is a youth community theatre group based in Greene County, NC, that provides educational performance experiences and opportunities for ages 3-18.
Mission. We are committed to delivering the highest quality of musical theatre education through engaging performance experiences and opportunities for youth across Eastern North Carolina.
Vision. We aspire to foster and develop a deep love and appreciation of the arts in our cast members and our community.
We Believe That There’s A Place For Everyone. Kids On Stage is for everyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, or disability status. Our community is accepting, loving, and caring. We are thankful for everyone in the #KOSFamily.
We Take Good Care. We balance a healthy process and polished product. We want to design spaces and rehearsal schedules that honor our young people’s humanity while allowing them the time to explore varying interests. We use each rehearsal moment to the fullest so that our cast and crew can feel confident in the final product while not feeling overworked or burned out.
We Learn And Grow. We have a passion for education and are intentional about integrating skill based instruction into our production experiences. Regardless of the cast member’s experience level, we believe that there is always room to learn and grow.
We Are Creative. Creativity is at the core of our work. We encourage our Dream Team and cast members to be creative in their work on stage and off. We value and encourage “thinking outside the box” because we believe that it will lead to captivating performances.
We Make Art That Matters. We believe that theatre can be a vessel to highlight various experiences and perspectives. We are committed to telling these stories, and we are vocal about their importance.
We Are Accessible. Cost should never be a barrier for anyone. We provide need based scholarships and work with local businesses to sponsor cast members participating in our program.
We Are Building Future Leaders. Ownership, teamwork, responsibility, & collaboration are at the heart of all our educational performance experiences and opportunities and are key attributes of good leaders. We believe these skills will take our cast members far in life post KOS even if they don’t become theatre professionals.
