A Community Partnership
“Just like the 35 years of selfless giving, the future of STAGES St. Louis is in the loving and nurturing hands of the community. STAGES has always been a Performing Arts Organization built by the people of St. Louis. I don’t see that generosity changing anytime soon as we move into a brilliant future.”
– Jack Lane, Executive Producer – STAGES St. Louis
“The City of Kirkwood and STAGES have forged a decades-long relationship that has brought nationally-recognized productions to our area to the delight of theatre lovers. Our working together has now resulted in the building of the beautiful, state-of-the-art Kirkwood Performing Arts Center which will be a regional draw for the arts of all types. As the Mayor of Kirkwood I am grateful for the long and successful partnership we have had with STAGES and look forward to working together for years to come.”
– Tim Griffin, Mayor – City of Kirkwood
The Michael Hamilton Artistic Fund
A proud St. Louisan, Michael’s love for his home town has been proven time and time again. From his dedication to local actors, designers, and technicians, to his 35 years of acclaimed and award winning productions, Michael’s love of St. Louis is undeniable. In honor of Michael’s steadfast leadership we are creating The Michael Hamilton Artistic Fund to support the advancement of the artistic needs at STAGES. This reserve fund will both keep the artistry at STAGES on a firm financial footing and send a true message of love and respect to Michael in honor of his retirement.
