Center Stage Jackson would like to extend it's thanks to everyone involved in the 2014-2015 season: on stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience.  
Thank you for supporting theater and the arts in Jackson!


Don't Forget to Purchase Membership for 2015-2016!

Center Stage Jackson achieves it's mission year after year by putting on several main stage productions, teaching youth about the arts through our youth theater productions and youth singing competition, exposing the public to different types of theatrical content through our free staged readings, providing quality musical entertainment to the community, allowing community members to express themselves through acting, song, dance, and more.

This non-profit organization is operated largely by volunteers, and we can use all the help we can get. We are almost always in need of board members and tech members (see here). But if you'd like to help out, but can't donate your time, we'd love to have you as one of our members in the 2015-2016 so that we can keep the arts alive and well in Jackson.
