About UpStaged Entertainment Group

UpStaged Entertainment Group (“UpStaged”) is a NYC and LA-based College and High School (“College/HS”) Performing Arts (“PA”) platform formed to empower our world’s College/HS performers to passionately celebrate the joy of competition. Proud innovators in student “March Madness meets Pitch Perfect”-like competitions, UpStaged is transforming the fragmented student PA market into a cohesive, content-rich community.

The Details

Let's break it down...

Consider the NCAA. Currently, there are 480,000 NCAA student athletes in 20+ sports. Simultaneously, 7.5 million College/HS students across 35 performing arts genres remain fragmented and siloed despite large, passionate followings on campuses and social media.

Enter UpStaged. UpStaged produces live and digital “Pitch Perfect”-like competitive championships across performing arts genres (e.g., a cappella, step, sketch comedy) in premier venues and virtual platforms (from Carnegie Hall to Zoom), enabling student performers to compete like athletes.

Operating under the brands UpStaged, National Collegiate Performing Arts (NCPA)™, National High School Performing Arts (NHSPA)™, and National Summer Camp Performing Arts (NSCPA)™, UpStaged is the aggregate home to these student performing arts competitions.

This College/HS content is the most diverse, scalable field of developable entertainment. As global demand for competitive live and virtual content expands at an unprecedented rate, UpStaged provides a platform for a massive untapped funnel of quality content, audience engagement, and spectator events.

I look forward to an America which will reward achievement in the Arts as we reward achievement in business or statecraft.
