Music on Stage is a community of performers, musicians, artisans, designers and volunteers dedicated to the preservation and development of quality live theatre in our suburban community. Our goal is to provide an open venue for the individual to be creative, inspired, and to stretch the limits of their imagination.
A strongly committed, hard working, volunteer Board of Directors has managed the business affairs of Music on Stage since its inception in 1956.
These talented individuals are young, old, men, women, teachers, office managers, artists, and lawyers - a true microcosm of the community. Some Board members regularly perform on-stage; most choose to be involved only behind the scenes of our great shows.
