Classes: Youth & Teen

SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS: Youth & Teen programs

The Duluth Playhouse School of Performing Arts is committed to providing exciting, innovative, and quality theatre arts education for the Northeast Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin regions.

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.
