Our Philosophy
Theatre is fun! It also builds social and interpersonal skills that can be used for a lifetime. The classes, all based on a foundation of acting and improvisation, are designed to help students build the skills needed to succeed on the stage and beyond.

We generally offer programming all year long:

  1. Summer Camps: 1 or 2 week classes offered in morning, afternoon or full day sessions.
  2. Fall Semester: After school programs, typically between 4 pm and 7 pm
  3. Spring Semester: After school programs, typically between 4 pm and 7 pm
  4. Workshops & Intensives: Classes & workshops outside of the semester calendar.

Financial Aid
Our goal is for our classes to be accessible to any interested student. Please contact us about need-based aid including discounts and payment plans.

Our class policies are listed below and on the bottom of each class listing. Please note than for 2021, we expect all pandemic-related policies to stay in place - and they are subject to change. Thank you for working with us during this unique situation.
