Visit New Bern
In 1986, Lu Hoff and Gena Andrews developed a children’s program that incorporated performing and signing a show for the hearing impaired. StageHANDS has performed over the years and was the first and only Total Communication (using voice and sign) community theatre group in the state. Today, StageHANDS continues to delight and captivate audiences each year with productions, as well as teach our young actors the true importance of our community and the performing arts.

StageHANDS is a unique program which presents children's musical theatre in total communication.

The Saax Bradbury Players (Teen Program)
The Saax Bradbury Players is a teen group operating within the New Bern Civic Theatre whose purpose is to engage young minds in problem solving skills, to enrich their lives through the literature and history of theatre, to educate them in the arts of theatre, and to enlighten them about the opportunities and people skills that theatre training provides, while entertaining our community by providing a superior theatre experience. We provide an outlet for creative community involvement.
Our goal is to reach teens in the New Bern-Craven County area and to create a sense of family in our performing arts community.
