WHAT WE DO
We believe performers learn best by doing.
Taking classes and voice lessons are essential for honing your craft, but putting those skills into practice is an experience that cannot be substituted.
We take your big dreams and we make them happen.
Specializing in one-of-a-kind, "living the dream" performances, On Stage Collective creates immersive theatrical experiences in exciting and memorable venues across the country.
BEHIND THE SCENES
With thriving private voice studios in Missouri and Tennessee, decades-long friends and former college roommates Heather McKenzie Patterson and Katherine Sandoval Taylor sought to create a performance opportunity for their students unlike anything they had ever experienced before. Combining their finely-honed crafts of vocal instruction and stage direction, Heather and Katherine believed that their students’ stage needed to be bigger and the lights brighter. On Stage Collective was born.
On Stage Collective now brings these "living the dream" opportunities to talented teen and adult performers from all across the country, selected through nationwide auditions. Now in partnership with venues like 54 Below and the Disney Imagination Campus, and with acclaimed Broadway guest artists and an outstanding artistic staff, On Stage Collective is ready to make your dreams a reality.
