Support the Centerstage Family.

People come first.

Centerstage has an all-female leadership team and remains flexible to accommodate parenting and part-time job commitments. We understand that many of our Centerstage staff, crew and cast are juggling multiple gigs and family obligations. It’s not unusual to see kids with coloring books and babies sleeping in strollers while rehearsals are in progress. We strive to pay a living wage but are currently paying much less than we know our talented crew deserves.

With that in mind, please understand that we are dependent upon this community’s generous donations to keep our doors open.

Our Current Monthly Operating Costs: $10,000/month

This is the amount required to keep our doors open each month. It covers:

  • rent on our Federal Way office space
  • staff salaries
  • utility bills

Centerstage is committed to diverse and equitable hiring practices and hires from within this local arts community.
In an average season, Centerstage employs approximately:

  • 50 -60 different actors
  • 4-6 directors
  • 3-5 different choreographers
  • 4-6 stage managers and/or assistant stage managers
  • 10-20 crew members and designers to oversee lighting, costumes, sets, props, sound, construction and painting
