World Stage Theatre is a multi-cultural, intergenerational arts organization with a strong focus on history and storytelling. The Imagination Express Arts Education program envelopes Music,  Movement and Monologue (M3), giving students the opportunity to IMAGINE a better world, EXPLORE theatre, CREATE art, and GROW as individuals in community with one another.  Through our program, developed for the classroom, classes, workshops and camps, students of all levels are able to explore the arts, sharpen their skills, receive live theatre exposure and experience performing with peers and, at times, professional artists.

With focus on the process and how we use art as a tool in everyday life, thousands of Portland metropolitan area youth, which are now professional actors, counselors, chefs, musicians and more, have participated in this exciting program.
