Civic Arts Stage Co.

Civic Arts Stage Company is a youth and family theater company dedicated to enhancing literacy and love of language. By enacting the stories of our most beloved children’s classics, our actors experience the great joy of reliving the stories we grew up with, while the audience watches the characters jump off the page and onto the stage.

Civic Arts Stage Company is proud of its quality productions, supported in large part by a relationship with Bay Area Children’s Theatre. Their extensive network of professional directors, stage managers, designers and actors offer a supportive and educational experience for our actors, which translates into a quality and educational performance experience. All productions are cast from auditions open to all residents of the Pleasanton and Tri-Valley communities. All youth ages 10-18 are encouraged to audition. No prior experience is required.

Note: All Civic Arts Stage Company productions are cast by audition only. There is a required program tuition fee after actors are cast in each production.


Civic Arts Stage Company productions are for young actors ages 10-18. Youth must be 10 on or before the first day of scheduled rehearsals for each of the three productions during the school year.


2018 Winter Production Auditions

Have you read the classic novels Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll? Ever wondered what it would be like to tell the whole story in a new way on stage? Well this fall we are going to venture down the rabbit hole and devise a new play based on these wonderful novels! Through exploration of these stories we will develop and create our own play featuring the characters we have all grown to know and love, in a new unique way. If you want to challenge yourself as an actor and create something original then we invite you to join us on this journey!
