New Vision






The Only Theatre Complex of its Kind in the Greater Lake Tahoe Area

There is no place on earth like Lake Tahoe. Renowned for its incredible crystal blue water and stunning mountain views, the largest alpine lake in the United States and its surrounding communities draw outdoor enthusiasts, hopeless romantics and those seeking respite from a hectic world. Now one of the most iconic destinations in the country will feature a long-needed new amenity bringing economic vitality, superlative entertainment, greater support and exposure for local arts groups, world-class performances, life-long learning, and cultural excitement to the region.

Introducing The Stages at Northstar.

Benefitting Generations




The Significant Value of Arts & Culture to the Lake Tahoe Region

Research consistently shows that a strong and dynamic arts environment brings significant benefits to residents and visitors. Yet the Lake Tahoe area does not have a regional performing, visual and cultural arts center on par with other mountain resort destinations. This is about to change. Featuring an approximate 60,000-square-foot complex, The Stages at Northstar contains three primary theatres and other space for diverse programming and multi-use events. It is designed as a regional theatre complex to complement surrounding community theatres and existing arts events with programming that can accommodate world-class, year-round performances and cultural opportunities. Most of all, The Stages will enhance economic vitality, provide exceptional educational advantages for people of all ages, enrich the quality of life for current and future generations, and serve as a destination point for the entire region.

Bringing the Vision
to the Stage



Ensuring a Vibrant and Viable Lake and Mountain Community

Stewarding a performing, visual and cultural arts center of this significance from concept to opening night will take a variety of strategic partners, advocates, advisors, and supporters. The Tahoe Regional Arts Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, was organized to lead and oversee The Stages at Northstar development and its programming. We are in the midst of assembling a diverse and committed group of government leaders; local residents, second homeowners, and frequent visitors; area, state and national businesses; corporate and charitable foundations; and prominent educational and arts advisors to advance the project efficiently and effectively. While in the very early phases of this effort, we are seeing tremendous interest and support from not only arts advocates, but also key community and business leaders who understand the positive impact The Stages will have on the Greater Lake Tahoe community.
