Taking the Stage

Stakes will be high. Rivalries will ignite. Relationships will be tested. Hearts will be broken. Hopes will be crushed on TAKING THE STAGE:mtv.ca/takingthestage.

MTV is set to premiere an empowering and inspirational original series. Beginning Thursday, March 19 at 10 p.m. ET, the cast of TAKING THE STAGEsing, dance, act and play music in an effort to make their mark at Cincinnati’s famous School for the Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA). Here, these talented students from all walks of life spend most of their waking hours honing their skills for a chance to prove they’ve got what it takes to make it. For these young hopefuls, it’s not in the pursuit of happiness where they find fulfillment, but in the happiness of pursuit.

When it comes down to it, it’s all about believing in yourself and following your dreams; about setting goals and giving everything you have to achieve them; about facing the realities of life and still TAKING THE STAGE.

Created by SCPA alumni Nick Lachey (NEWLYWEDS) and Colton Gramm, TAKING THE STAGE premieres on MTV Canada on Thursday, March 19 at10 p.m. ET. For more information and to watch the preview, click here mtv.ca/takingthestage.
