Our experienced, supportive teaching artists will help you or your child discover the actor within you and gain confidence. Classes focus on the process of acting or musical theatre, and performances are presented at the end of each semester for family and friends.

A Play in a Day workshops are offered throughout the year. Students will create an original play or musical, create sets and costumes, and perform in front of their family and friends all in one day!
