Year after year, the impact of STAGE is evident, through shows such as Grease, Scrooge, Annie, Li’l Abner, Wizard of Oz, Hello Dolly, and many more. The success of these productions is the result of the work of students, teachers, directors, parents, and community members. As we continue to build upon our repertoire of success, we hope you help keep this experience alive for the students.


“Over 40 students from all over Boone County have been diligently working since September in preparation for this show. We had an overwhelming amount of students to audition for the show, ranging from 2nd grade-12th grade. The talent within our county is truly phenomenal and it gives me great pride to say that we put on something that involves the entire community,” said Chelsea Price, Director of Willy Wonka. “This program brings out the essence of what it means to be from a “small town”. When parents, friends, neighbors, and local businesses jump at the opportunity to help out even when they do not have a child that is directly involved, it really shows what Boone County is all about. I urge you all to come and see the show, see the hard work of love and dedication from our community. Step into a world of “Pure Imagination” with the witty, family-friendly show Willy Wonka!”
