Program Overview

Open Stage Project is a free program for female* high school students interested in careers behind the scenes on Broadway and in TV/film. 

*We use an inclusive definition of "girls," “women,” and “female.” We welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members’ identities, such as but not limited to race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.
