Classes: Youth & Teen

SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS: Youth & Teen programs

We believe that theatre is a fully active art form- engaging the mind and body so that learning is layered and lasting. Our education programming focuses on teaching performing arts skills to engage the creative minds and develop the talents of our students.

We have an array of creative, fun, and challenging opportunities for all ages to explore the power of performance. It is more than just a play, it is a life-long skill-building experience.

Did you know…30% of our students receive a scholarship and no child is ever denied? Help send a child to theatre camp!
