The format includes Studio Level, Production and Process Classes, and Workshops. Each format offers unique games, activities and challenges for the theatre student.

We make every effort to adhere to the age policy for classes. The exception would be a returning student for the same teacher and the specific ages enrolled in the class in question. Each teacher can best assess the needs of the individual student.

How many children are in a class?
Class enrollment minimums and maximums are specific to the type of class. Please see the information provided in each class description.

When are your classes?
Our classes run year-round, with a Fall and Spring semester, a Winter Mini-Mester and Summer Camp courses.

How long do classes run?
A typical session is 10 weeks (though Winter Mini-mester is only 6 weeks). Studio classes run for full or part-year.

Will taking classes help my child get cast in one of your plays?
Enrollment in a class does not guarantee casting in a production, but honing acting skills through classes certainly helps children prepare for the expectations of auditions and the demands of rehearsals.

Will there be a performance at the end of the class?
All classes (1st grade and up) will end in some kind of informal “sharing” for the parents (except for the Winter Mini-Mester or otherwise specified). Depending on the type of class, some sharings may present a rehearsed performance and some may be a sample class. We record the “sharing” and send the video link to parents.  Parents do NOT physically attend the “sharing.”

Does my child need experience to take classes?
No. We have classes for beginners at every age as well as classes for those with experience.
