Stage Geeks is a very unique theater camp. We offer workshops on all facets of theatrical productions. Above, below and everything in-between is our motto for curriculum. In the past, as we produced shows through Sterling Civic Theatre, we noticed that our productions were too short in preparation, and more importantly, about 75% of our participants have done little to no theater before. So there was a huge learning curve to overcome. We think we solved it.

We offer to the general public the most affordable and safe venue for everyone to learn in. Taking every facet of theatrical production and creating workshops for them has reduced the learning curve and has been a lot of fun. There is truly something for everyone. If you like to act, sing and dance you’re in the right place. If you love to geek out on Drones, think pyrotechnics are cool and have a knack for lighting and sound…you are also in the right place.
