National Collegiate Performing Arts (NCPA)™

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.

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.

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.

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.
