Spring 2022 Program

Page & Stage is a free program for low-income children between 3-5 years old. This program brings early reader stories to life through theatre, fostering creativity, imagination and - ultimately - literacy. The primary goal of Page & Stage is to leverage the arts by engaging students interests in literature, inspire critical thinking and deepen understanding of not just curriculum, but everything around them.

Workshops will be offered virtually this school year to give students an opportunity to engage with the teaching artist. On demand content will also be created to extend the program to students who are not present in the classroom. Each student will receive a FREE copy of each book title to take home to their family and build an at-home library.

Page & Stage serves multiple areas of Monmouth and Ocean County including Neptune Acelero, Asbury Park Acelero, Freehold Aclero, and Monmouth Day Care Center (Red Bank).
