Providing advocacy & resources for the field of theatre for young audiences.

Janet Stanford


Janet Stanford (Artistic Director of Imagination Stage) met with artistic directors of three major youth theatres—The Children’s Theatre of Minneapolis, Stages Theatre Company, and Dallas Children’s Theatre—and examined how they balance programming in their facilities. Stanford’s theatre recently opened a state-of-the-art facility, which has more than doubled their organizational budget. The challenge of keeping pace with this growth is at the heart of Stanford’s research.
