I can’t even imagine how different my life would be if I hadn’t joined Wavestage six years ago. I have grown up surrounded by passionate, empathetic, likeminded people and they have truly shaped me into the person I am today. I have made lifelong friends who I know will always have my back. I am forever grateful to my wonderful director Sarah Langford for continuing to give me opportunities and inspiring me to become a better performer and person. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a special family.”

“Wavestage Theatre has been the best thing to happen to my daughter. It has brought her love of musical theatre to a new level. She belonged to other theatre companies in the past but nothing compares to what she has learned from Sarah Langford and the team of choreographers and directors. I highly recommend Wavestage Theatre Company for a remarkable musical theatre experience.”

“Joining Wavestage has been amazing because I have learned so much about acting in a short span of time! I love being in the Youth Academy programs because I have developed strong friendships and greater confidence on stage as a performer. All of the performances that I have been a part of were an act of teamwork and a feeling that we were a part of something important.”

“Wavestage Theatre Company’s Youth program is what I look forward to every week. There, I have made so many friends who share the same passion as me. I love that I get to sing songs from a variety of musicals, as well as learning choreography to them. At Wavestage, I never have to feel pressured because the staff is extremely supportive and constantly hope for us to have fun. Having people around you that share similar goals is really inspiring and motivating.”

“Wavestage has been my home for the past nine seasons. Through the youth program, I was able to work my way up to a confident triple threat performer for over 20 mainstage shows. I learned from the choreographers to become more in tune with my body I gained flexibility and movement I didn't know I was capable of. My voice training was incredible. I absolutely fell in love with singing. With Sarah Langford's guidance and support I am now studying music in university and I aspire to pursue a career in singing. The skills I learned through Wavestage Theatre were useful because I was able to learn how to be confident in myself. Before I started musical theatre, I was a shy, awkward and uncomfortable person. Wavestage taught me to believe in myself, and I learned how to love myself and my craft. Whether I had a leading role or a small part in the ensemble, I was always able to learn from other members of the creative process. At Wavestage, we are a family!”

“Lucas’s world changed 3 years ago when he auditioned for Ragtime. Being a part of the Wavestage family has turned him into a full fledged lover of the stage. Sarah’s dedication to professionalism and passion to watch these students succeed has given Lucas the drive to be the very best he can be every time he steps on that stage. The friends he has made through this program are supportive, enthusiastic and want to see each other succeed. I can honestly say that there is no other program that could have given Lucas a more positive environment with which to become an actor.”
