Summer 2015 Workshop 

We provide classes in acting technique, music,dance, and technical theatre.  Our program accepts children at all levels oftheatre experience, from grade 1 through 12.

Children enjoy instruction designed for their age group, and delivered by a staff of highly trained instructors with extensive experience in their areas.

This year we offering a Technical Theatre option for grades 6-12.  Your student may choose from any of the following areas to study: stage managing/stage crew, lighting design or sound design.  If a student would like to learn more than one area, he/she is welcomed to sign up for both weeks. The technical theatre students will be responsible for running the technical portions of the Saturday performances. Class size is very limited, however, so register right away.

Students in Week Two can not be in both the theatre workshop and the technical theatre workshop.

Tuition covers over 17 hours of instruction for students in grades 1-5 and in the technical theatre option, and 35 hours for older children.

In addition to quality instruction, all students receive a workshop t-shirt, four tickets to the final stage performance, and the opportunity to make new friends and memories!
