Seven Stages - Atlanta

With support from Georgia Council for the Arts, 7 Stages produced quality performances that inspired the imagination, provoked dialogue and interaction, and spoke to the social, political, and spiritual themes of our age. In concert with productions, we implemented curriculum based arts learning programs in local schools, and provided outreach and development services for hundreds of area children, adults, and artists. Support for local artists was provided though the Home Brew series, offering opportunities for local playwrights to have staged readings and world premiere productions. 7 Stages was a major employer of Atlanta based actors, musicians, designers, and technicians. 7 Stages also worked as a global ambassador to promote American theatre and collaborated with international artists, ensembles, and organizations. These activities promoted Georgia on a national and international level. All activities contributed positively to the economy. According to the Arts and Economic Prosperity calculator provided by Americans for the Arts, 7 Stages supported 33 full time equivalent jobs. Our local government received an estimated $52,284 in revenue and the State of Georgia earned $63,203 in revenue from expenditures made by 7 Stages or our patrons. The total industry impact of 7 Stages and its audience’s event related expenditures is estimated at $1,130,904.
