    About KidStage

    KidStage is offering unique and fun-filled franchises. Our opportunity can be a home-based business in which you offer KidStage classes which actually take place in your local schools, day care centers, senior citizen centers, boys and girls clubs, YMCA's etc. No high costs of leasing or purchasing space. You will find KidStage a profitable and high-demand business.

    KidStage is a complete "Performing Arts Learning Center" using ordinary classrooms as our "theatre" in which we teach children self-expression and creativity, as well as give them confidence through their participation in theatrical productions. With overcrowded schools, over-worked teachers and tight school budgets, the extra time and effort needed to help students is practically non-existent. KidStage was formed specifically to solve this growing problem. We have spent over 15 years developing solutions to assist in helping children.

    The success of our programs has propelled us to the point that we are now offering Franchises in selected areas. We are seeking creative, enthusiastic individuals interested in establishing a successful business while at the same time making a positive difference in the lives of children. Most importantly, theatre experience is not necessary!
