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 competitions, UpStaged is transforming the fragmented student PA market into a cohesive, content-rich community.
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 group performing arts genres (e.g. a cappella, step, comedy troupes) 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.
