at a very early age. They promote self-expression through
exploration and discovery of the world around the child.

Writing and promote social awareness, communication,
teamwork and creativity while teaching important theatrical
terminology and how to work with a script.

moving from ensemble to partner and solo work. Students can
expect further exploration of character development, acting
method, script analysis, memorization and audition prep.
Essential Classes (6th & 7th Grade)
These classes offer the addition of an introduction to
the business side of theatre including self-promotion,
auditioning, building a resume and selecting a headshot.
Students will work to develop their voice and gain
confidence in their movements while exploring various
acting and performance theories and popular techniques.
Young Adult Theatrical Academy (8th–12th Grade)

their audition material with our
