If you aren’t familiar with Upper Darby Summer Stage at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center you are missing out! Upper Darby Summer Stage is the region’s showcase for family-friendly musicals.
Upper Darby Summer Stage is one of nation’s oldest and most successful youth theater programs. For five years in a row (2008-2012), Summer Stage was voted by My Fox Philly’s Best Theater Group in Philadelphia! The mission of Upper Darby Summer Stage is to encourage young people to develop the magic of their talents, personality and energy, and to share that magic with audiences through outstanding theatrical performances for the entire family. Each summer, over 700 young people from in and around the Delaware Valley come to Summer Stage and participate in one of our programs. Participants range in age from 11 to 28. Turns out my neighbor was in Summer Stage when SHE was in high school. And she drove an hour each day to come and be a part of it – who knew!
The next Upper Darby Performing Arts Center Summer Stage children’s theater show to hit the stage is James and The Giant Peach Jr. this week July 27-29. Next week will be Disney’s Mulan, Jr. running Aug 3-5. And the final children’s theater show of the season is The Dinosaur Musical running August 10-12. So there’s still plenty of time to take the kids and enjoy one of these affordable, family friendly shows this summer. Let your child’s imagination soar! Treat him or her to a show!
