Performing Arts

If, as Shakespeare said, all the world’s a stage, then we contend that sometimes, a stage is all the world.

For a whole lot of Variety kids, the stage where they learn and perform a Variety Children’s Theatre production is a world where they gain self-esteem, self-confidence, independence, and socialization skills.

Where they discover they can not only reach for something greater, but grab it as well.

For a kid like Nick, surrounded by fantastic beasts and talking birds and flying nannies, one thing is real: he’s learned to believe in himself.
