About us

Who We Are

StageStruck: The Young People's Own Theatre has been a leader in providing local youth with a venue to experience the world of theatre and has been entertaining Wayne County since 1991. StageStruck is an affiliate of the Arts Council of Wayne County and a member of the American Association of Community Theatre. We receive funding each year from the NC Arts Council, but we are primarily supported in the community by ticket sales, grants, and sponsorships. StageStruck continues to be a parent-run organization with a Board of Trustees and a growing membership in Wayne and surrounding counties. StageStruck is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are 100% tax deductible.

Our Mission

To encourage young people’s knowledge of, interest in, and participation in the theatrical performing arts.
