Kids Take the Stage

 

Three times each year we offer theater classes for kids. These classes teach theater skills such as acting, singing, pantomime, improvisation and stage make-up, but equally as important, they help kids develop real life skills like confidence, reading, team work, self-esteem and communication.

 

We offer a six-week winter session starting in January/February, a six-week spring session starting in March/April and a six-week fall session beginning in October. We do not offer classes in June and July so we and the kids can concentrate on the Free Summer Musical Program.

 

But new this year, we have summer camps in August!

 

Registration for summer camps is now open. Registration for fall classes will open in late August/early September.
