As your community theatre, we strive to offer as many opportunities as we can for you to experience the performing arts. Whether you want to perform, work behind the scenes or simply enjoy a great show, Center Stage Jackson is open to all!

CSJ Has four "mainstage" productions a season. Two plays and two musicals. Our Youth Theatre committee produces one musical and one play as well for children 3rd through 9th grade. During the Summer we produce a musical that is focused more toward the older teen/college crowd. In addition to full productions we are able to present six "staged readings" of plays to the community free of charge due to grants generously awarded by Jackson Community Foundation and the Jackson Literary and Arts Association, and various other productions.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the support and dedication of our membership. We would urge anyone who is interested in seeing the arts flourish in thier community to become a member. Cost is as low as $10 for an individual membership. If you are interested in becoming involved as a member, please see Membership' on the top menu.

With so many activities going on all the time, be sure you check our calendar for the most updated information, and if you're interested in auditioning for a show, check out our Auditions page for notices.

If you have any questions or want to get involved in any way, please let us know via the Contact Us link on the left-side menu and someone will get back to you.

Thank you for supporting Center Stage Jackson, Your Commnity Theatre.
